(La Porte, IN) - The La Porte County Commissioners met this morning for the first time of 2021. Rich Mrozinski, right after he was elected president of the county commission for this year, said one of his priorities will be adopting a new countywide code enforcement ordinance.
Mrozinski said he continues to hear complaints about junk vehicles and other forms of eyesores. “We don’t have a decent code enforcement ordinance to address that,” he said.
A code enforcement ordinance with more teeth was proposed more than three-years ago. The measure quickly went down in flames after a large group of citizens denounced what they felt would be a violation of their freedoms and rights as property owners.
Mrozinski, of Rolling Prairie, is beginning his second term on the commission.
