Code Enforcement officers were out in the Lindale area on Thursday, near Ray High School. It was all part of a new kickoff to another Operation Proud Partnership project.
Officers were going door to door, educating folks in that neighborhood about code violations and different things they should be on the lookout for when it comes to criminal activity.
The focus of Operation Proud Partnership is to get under-served neighborhoods cleaned up and back in shape. It was announced at a Thursday morning news conference that, for the next year, Code Enforcement officers will be paying extra attention to the neighborhood.
"What it is, is the community and government working together. Remember, this is not something were coming in to enforce. We're coming in and issuing warnings, educating people on what code enforcement issues they may be violating, and then helping them rectify that," Assistant City Manager Troy Riggs said. "At the end of the day, most people do that. The community becomes better. It helps property values. It helps quality of life."
Thursday marked the last official press conference for Riggs, who will be leaving soon for a job in Indianapolis.
