HUNTINGTON -- The city of Huntington has received a federal grant to hire a third code enforcement officer who will help enforce a new set of laws intended to eliminate external sanitation violations such as trash, junk storage and tall grass.
The $28,000 Justice Assistance Grant from the U.S. Department of Justice was announced in a press release from Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's office. The grants are administered by the West Virginia Division of Justice and Community Services.
"A third officer will allow us to be even more proactive as opposed to reactive," said Huntington Police Capt. Hank Dial, who wrote the grant application. "So far, the citizens have really bought into this program and have provided us with information daily on spots that we need to address."
