(Richmond, IN)--Richmond Common Council met as a Committee of the Whole Monday night to get more information from Mayor Dave Snow about his proposed changes involving next year’s budget. Much of the time was spent on Snow’s proposal to increase code enforcement to clean up unsightly properties. The Code Enforcement Department would include a chief officer, three full-time inspectors, and a four-person work crew. Snow also wants to initiate a program where rental properties would be inspected when they become vacant to make sure they’re up to code. Council will continue budget discussions when it meets again this coming Monday.
