BELLINGHAM, Wash. – R.V. parks in the middle of a neighbor’s property, dozens of backyard chickens and unregulated food trucks are just some of the code violations Whatcom County has struggled to address.

Councilmember Sam Crawford says it’s hard for the planning department to respond to every complaint in a timely manner.

Crawford says even though there are many examples of code violations the council has tried to avoid being too heavy-handed.

County Executive Jack Louws said in his ‘State of the County’ address that code enforcement should be a top priority for the council this year.

The council’s Planning and Development Committee will discuss the issue in a work session later today.
