Code Enforcement Officer II is the second-level class in the professional planning series. Under direction, incumbents perform the full range of assigned duties in the Code Enforcement Division of the Planning & Zoning Department function. This class differs from the lower-level class in the skill level required, the complexity of assigned projects with multiple, complex violations, and the greater amount of time focused on more complex cases, policies, plan review, and disabled access liaison on access issues as opposed to time spent working in the field enforcing transition violations at the City’s planning counter. Code Enforcement II is distinguished from Code Enforcement Officer in that the latter is the professional journey-level of the Code Enforcement Division and operates more independently on more sensitive and complex violations.
