Codes moves from City Hall to RVT
The city Bureau of Codes office, formerly in City Hall, has relocated into the River Valley Transit headquarters at 1500 W. Third St., city officials said.
For permits and codes-related business, residents and businesses will be able to drive to the RVT headquarters, park and enter the lobby where they can fill out paperwork such as a permit application, or if they want to meet with an officer ask at the security desk, said Joseph Gerardi, city codes administrator.
City Hall is condemned due to inhabitable conditions because of mold. The mold formed when water leaked through the roof in July.
A temporary relocation of City Hall employees began with codes and patrol division of the police department the last to leave the condemned building.
Adam Winder, city director of transportation and infrastructure, said the offices for the codes employees were repainted in preparation for the temporary relocation.
Gerardi said for a temporary relocation, he and the department personnel are happy.
There is reception area for Robin Adams, with the enforcement officers in cubicles along with Gerardi and zoning officer Gary Knarr.
“We have nice offices and accessible access,” he said.
