The DeKalb County Office of Solicitor General has established Quality of Life Unit to address concerns about code violations and nuisance issues in the county.

After the county started its Operation Clean Sweep program, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners approved a budget request of over $70,000 from the Office of the Solicitor-General to create the Quality of Life Unit. According to a press release, the program is “dedicated to addressing quality of life issues that impact DeKalb County citizens.”

The Quality of Life Unit includes:

– Two assistant solicitor-generals
– A community prosecutor
– An investigator
– A legal assistant

These officials are in charge of prosecuting any case that has to do with “code violations, blight, nuisance and other issues that may plague a community or business in DeKalb County.”

“Prosecution is key to effectively send the message that DeKalb County is serious about eliminating blight,” CEO Michael Thurmond said in a recent press release. “The Solicitor-General’s Quality of Life Unit is an innovative solution that will help improve and beautify our communities.”
