TUCKER, Ga. (Aug. 2, 2016) – Tucker Mayor Frank Auman swore in William Wharton as the City’s first Code Compliance Officer on July 29. With his verbal oath, Wharton is now able to issue code violation citations on behalf of the City.
Wharton has been a Code Compliance Manager for 11 years, working previously for Sandy Springs and Johns Creek. He received his BA in criminal justice from North Carolina Central University and his MPA in public management from Troy University.
Wharton will be responsible for investigating complaints regarding violations of the City’s code including overgrown properties, unsecured vacant properties, inoperable and/or unlicensed vehicles, and illegal signage. “I look forward to helping the City of Tucker improve the quality of life for its residents and business owners as well as protecting their health, safety and welfare,” said Wharton.
One of Wharton’s current projects includes collaborating with Tucker’s Geographical Information System (GIS) department to generate a baseline of current property maintenance conditions in the City. After the baseline is established, the Code Compliance department will be able to use a map to track its progress for improving properties through enforcement of city codes and ordinances.
To report code violations, please contact William Wharton directly at (470) 273-3093 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Emailed reports must include your name, phone number, address of the violation, type of violation, and a detailed description. Anonymous reports are only accepted via telephone at this time.
