The city council voted unanimously Monday night to approve an ordinance allowing for a judge, clerk and associated personnel needed to operate the court. The court is to adjudicate the enforcement of ordinances in the city.
The city also has made a change to its code enforcement officer’s position. The council had hired Dan Crumley for that position back in April.
But Mayor Ronnie Maxwell said Monday night that an agreement couldn’t be reached in making the position full or part time, so Crumley resigned.
“It was amiable,” Maxwell said Monday night. “He had a different vision for the position than we had.”
Maxwell said Ivan Spindola, who has worked as an officer for Gainesville and Hall County, has been hired to take the part time position. Spindola will work with the city building inspector in enforcing the city’s codes.
Maxwell said he hopes the position will be operating by September.
