Housing Livability & Rehabilitation
This Unit, led by Denise Weiland-Jones, Housing Program Manager, has two distinct responsibilities. First, we enforce the minimum livability code for County residential rental properties to ensure our County residents live in homes which are safe and healthy. Secondly, we work with qualifying low-income residential property owners to rehabilitate homes and to alleviate health and safety hazards.
