Sylvester -- One south Georgia community is improving livability with a new Building and Code Inspector.

Everyday James Harris drives around Sylvester looking for health and safety problems in neighborhoods. He makes sure homes meet federal regulations and city ordinances.

Violations may include trash build-up or old cars in yards. Harris also looks for roofing, water, and drainage problems.

"What if you lived here and you had a nice yard and your neighbor had three or four junk cars right beside you.It creates a hassle and a nuissance and potential safety problem."

Harris will write citations if problems are not corrected quickly.

The city of Sylvester will host a housing fair this Saturday, March 11 to help people find affordable housing that is safe and up to code.  The fair will be from 10 am until 2 pm at the City Hall Council Chambers in Sylvester.
