Bonita Springs Code Enforcement Officer Danielle Helmick has a difficult job that requires a multitude of skills. She emphasizes education and working with violators, as opposed to outright fines. “I try to work with them, and as long as there’s progress, we will continue to do so.” She posts a stop work order at a house where workers went above and beyond what the permit allowed, making structural changes to the home. “It’s nice to see they’re improving it, though,” said Helmick.
