Kremmling Police Chief Jesse Lisenby was officially sworn into his role during the town’s board meeting Aug. 16. During the meeting, Chief Lisenby and town manager Ashley Macdonald discussed with town trustees the possibility of restructuring the police department’s code enforcement.

The town has been searching for a code enforcement officer, after the resignation of former officer Gary Green in late June. Lisenby and the town have discussed removing the code enforcement position and instead dividing the duties between town staff and the police department.

Lisenby expressed that his current department is able and willing to take over code enforcement responsibilities in Kremmling. Ideally, the town will cover administrative responsibilities, and the police department will take care of code enforcement, whether it is informing a resident of unregistered vehicles on their property, or weeds that are too high.
