Code enforcement: one of City Hall's most controversial, and misunderstood, jobs
Lead code enforcement officer James Stephens drives by seven cars seen parked in the driveway and directly in front of a home on Santa Clara Drive. The homeowner is facing an abatement order following a city hearing and must remove the debris scattered on the outside of the property by July 21, 2017. If the owner does not comply, the city will install a lien on the property. Photo by Veronica Weber.
