The Problem Resolution Team addresses problem properties that have the attention of two or more city departments — police, building, fire, — that are creating a nuisance in the neighborhood.
Members include representatives from the City Council, City Administration, Building Department, Fire Department, Legal Department, Regional Planning, Police Department, Hall County Sherriff’s Department, Central District Health Department, and Clean Community System. They meet on the third Tuesday of the month.
Problem Resolution Team Goal – Resolve problems by improving the efficiency and effectives of addressing targeting properties that do not meet the community standard.
Problem Resolution Team Mission – Address situations of immediate concern, as well as long term recurring problems, targeting properties and situations that need a multi-resource approach.
