Corry City Council has begun digging into the details of the housing code recommendations that were presented to council last week by the Corry Code Committee.

The nine-member committee, made up of volunteers from various walks of life, has spent the past several months researching code-enforcement issues and devising a plan to help council develop an effective code-enforcement program. The committee took on the task because members knew City Council did not have the time or resources to conduct such detailed research. Its goal is to make Corry a safer and more attractive place to live and to provide layers of protection for landlords and tenants alike.

The committee gathered at council’s public work session Monday to answer questions about their recommendations, which are nonbinding. Council will have the final say when it comes to adopting any of the recommendations.

Committee spokesman Brad Allen said the volunteer group wanted council’s input on what the committee now must do to make a code-enforcement program a reality.

“It’s time to roll up your sleeves and start digging in to see what we can do to keep the ball rolling,” Allen said.
