Since you brought up code violations, I looked at your posting of the budget performance measures. Target area 4 stays the same for 4 years- 95% with no improvement expected or forecasted. So, this means that 50 out of 1,000 properties will continue to be substandard.
If those 50 were around your house, is that acceptable to you?
On the 99% response time in 48 hours, I think that number is bogus. My average response time is 1.8 weeks, with a wide variation of response from 1 day to over 2 months, if I get a response at all. I did not count the "no response" in my metric.
Plus, 49,000 code violations with voluntary compliance equals one code violation for every other person in Lewisville. How is this possible? That is 23.5 violations per hour for 5 officers, or 4.7 violations every hour for every inspector, for one work year of 2080 hours, not including vacations, training etc.
Just curious. Let me know if you want to see the violations around my neighborhood- I would be happy to walk you around and we can make a count.
