International Property Maintenance Code Rescinded (Audio)

BENZIE COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER—The county commission voted unanimously to adopt an ordinance rescinding their adoption of the International Property Maintenance Code at this morning’s regular county commissioners meeting. Members of the media were there (Record–Patriot, TV 9&10, and others), and more than 120 members of the general public. A show of hands, initiated by commission chair Don Tanner, revealed that almost all those in attendance had come to express their opposition to the code.

Below is a link to a very poor quality recording of the first part of the meeting. You’ll also hear Sheriff Schendel and some members of the public and other county employees make their case for the need for 5 more patrol officers. Please excuse both the quality of the audio and the occasional editorial comment from the member of the public holding the recording device! My views do not necessarily reflect those of the Alert newspaper or those of its other writers/editors/readers.—Emily Votruba
