South Coast City Attorney's Office Expands Staff
Santa Barbara has added more staff to improve enforcement out of its City Attorney's Office.
Over the last few years, the office has been in need of extra staff as the caseload has gone up in areas including code enforcement, vacation rentals, criminal prosecutions, and nuisance abatements.
In a presentation in front of the city, issues including homelessness, illegal fires, safe housing standards, and consumer protection issues were all brought up.
The new staff said they would meet with suspected violators and lay out problems, resolutions, and the consequences of noncompliance.
