NORWICH – The City of Norwich Common Council approved the purchase of a new vehicle for the City Code Enforcement Office at their December meeting. The city authorized the purchase of a 2008 used cargo van for the department.
Last month, City of Norwich Code Enforcement Officer Jason Lawrence told members of the Public Works / Public Safety committee that the codes vehicle had experienced a major system failure and would not be repaired. In the past, the department had also utilized a fire department car as a back-up vehicle, but that car is also currently out of service. While the fire vehicle will be repaired, other vehicles are a higher priority.
