Capt. Andre Niles with the Hall County Marshal’s Office was named Wednesday as the state’s 2013 Code Enforcement Officer of the Year.
The award from Keep Georgia Beautiful, given at a luncheon in Atlanta, recognized Niles for time and energy put toward creating a safe and clean environment in Hall County.
Niles’ achievements include forming a foreclosure registry in Hall to allow code enforcement officers to more easily find owners of foreclosed and vacant properties that need attention. He also helped facilitate the county’s participation in the annual Shore Sweep along Lake Lanier.
Keep Georgia Beautiful is a state organization focused on protecting the environment and improving the community.
