This text is primarily focused on the preservation of the existing building stock, both residential and commercial. In America, there are thousands of employees at many levels of government who are responsible for enforcing laws, codes and regulations designed to address the condition of buildings and property. None of these people earned a degree specifically tailored to code enforcement duties from an accredited institution of higher learning. There is no such degree. For 28 consecutive years of a 34 year career in the field, the author offered instruction to thousands of people on the issues involved in operating a code enforcement program. This book is a distillation of the notes and the education gleaned from both presenting those classes and from the information and insights shared by class participants. It is also based on the experience of managing these programs in Milwaukee and in New York City. The text provides options on how to handle many common issues encountered . . .
