Mesquite, TX – January 24, 2017 – The City of Mesquite will host a Code Ambassadors Open House on Thursday, February 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the Rehearsal Hall at the Mesquite Arts Center, 1527 N. Galloway Avenue. The open house will provide information about the Code Ambassadors program, which enlists the help of citizen volunteers to identify code violations throughout the community. For more information, visit www.cityofmesquite.com/CodeAmbassadors or call the Neighborhood Services Department at 972-329-8704.
Once trained, volunteer Code Ambassadors survey neighborhoods in city-provided vehicles for code violations viewable from the right-of-way. Volunteers must undergo background checks and commit to six hours per month of volunteer time. Multiple training classes and mandatory ride-outs with code enforcement officers are also required. The program has graduated 30 residents to date. Volunteers are not authorized to survey neighborhoods where they reside.
