BANGOR, Maine — City officials announced Thursday that Jeremy Martin has been named Bangor’s next code enforcement officer.
The code enforcement position opened up in September when Dan Wellington retired after a 34-year career with the city.
Martin, who since then had been serving as interim code enforcement officer, was one of more than a dozen applicants for the job.
“Jeremy has proven himself to be a knowledgeable and versatile member of the Code Enforcement team over the past 10 years and we are pleased that he will be leading the Division moving forward,” Rodney McKay, director of community and economic development, said in announcing Martin’s promotion.
“His talents and work ethic are impressive and his vision for continuing to improve the accessibility and performance of the department is exciting,” McKay said.
Martin could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
Martin has served as development coordinator in the the city’s Code Enforcement Division for the past 10 years, a position that involved among another things overseeing permitting and development activities within the city in addition to serving as Bangor’s zoning administrator.
Martin also oversaw several city programs, including Historic Preservation, Floodplain Management and Stormwater Maintenance.
Martin’s appointment is effective immediately.
