ROCKLAND — Code Enforcement Officer Adam Ackor will be leaving his position as of Sept. 30.

Ackor said Tuesday, Sept. 7 he has decided to go back to operating his general contracting company, Shore Village Builders, full time.

Ackor served one term on the Rockland City Council, being elected in 2016. He did not seek reelection in 2018.

He was hired as assistant code enforcement officer in August 2019 and promoted to chief code officer upon the departure of John Root.

Ackor said he has enjoyed his time with the city.

“It’s been a great place to work,” Ackor said.

The outgoing code officer said the city will have to collectively decide how it wants to enforce its codes. Ackor has said that only about 10 percent of people fully comply with directives after they cited for violations. The city has contended that the court has a backlog in land-use cases and that is why it has not pursued these cases in court.

The city is also trying to fill the public services director job. Rockland’s Public Services Director Kathy Bourque Parker resigned her post last month.
