What are we measuring?
This measure tracks the percentage of code violations issued on properties that received another violation in the previous 12 months. Violations are counted regardless of whether the property owner had changed between violations. The measure only tracks violations issued by the Code Enforcement Division of the Fulton County Police Department.
Why are we measuring it?
An excessive number of repeat violators may indicate that existing punitive measures are not effective at deterring some property owners from committing code offenses.
How are we doing?
The number of violations on a property with a violation in the previous 12 months has remained fairly steady at around 15 percent of all violations.
