The Zoning Administrator provides advisory, educational and enforcement supervision over environmental health problems of the entire county. A basic responsibility is in the area of private waste disposal systems that include inspection and enforcement of violations of the Plumbing Code. The Zoning Office receives information pertaining to septage disposal, soil information and other related issues. The code enforcement functions result from the department’s responsibility for administration of the county’s zoning subdivision ordinances, Airport and Shoreland zoning ordinances. The office also assigns addresses for all new developments. The Zoning Administrator also acts as the Brownfield Site Coordinator which entails working with county-owned sites that are contaminated by chemical pollution and then taking steps to get the sites cleaned up and back on the tax roll by being re-sold to the public. Oversees licensing and operation of Non-Metallic Mining program to license active gravel pits in Taylor County and serves as ex-officio to the Land Use Advisory Committee for completing the Taylor County Land Use Plan.
