Early risers and concerned citizens can express concerns, ask questions and get updates on town goings-on at this month's Morning with the Mayor breakfast. This month's meeting will focus on code enforcement and Code Enforcement Officer Dave Casteel will be on hand to discuss enforcement specifics.
Morning with the Mayor is a program held on the first Friday of the month at Father Nature's Restaurant (172 E. Prospect Ave). September's subject is one of several topics discussed at the monthly meeting, which as also featured discussions on public saftey and recreation.
"This is the opportunity if residents have concerns…to contact me," said Casteel, who will give an overview of what code enforcement is. "I'm here to enforce the regulations to preserve the character of Danville and the safety of it."
According to the town website, code enforcement officers are responsible for eliminating nuisance, health or safety violations, enforcing zoning laws and building code violations. Code Enforcement works with other branches of town government as well as county departments and special districts to educate and enforce regulations.
"I probably deal with 2,000 citizen contacts a year and have roughly 200 cases a year," Casteel said.
The September event will be held on Friday, Sept. 2 from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Those unable to attend the program can view a recording on the town of Danville website.
