Rockland — William Butler has resigned as Rockland's assistant code enforcement officer. He has been hired as code enforcement officer for the town of China.

City Manager Tom Luttrell said Butler notified him Friday, June 7, of his decision. He has been with the city since December 2015.

Prior to coming to Rockland, Butler worked for the Maine Department of Environmental Protection for 23 years in the Solid Waste Division.

He has also served as code officer in the towns of Glenburn, LaGrange, Hallowell and Lincoln.

Butler is the great-nephew of District Court Judge Walter Butler, to whom Butler Square, off Broadway, is dedicated. The elder Butler was the first commander of the local American Legion post.

The city discussed at a budget meeting earlier this year whether to try to combine a planner position with a code enforcement position. The city manager said Monday that he would check with other municipalities to see how their experiences with such a combination position has worked.

Bill is a fair minded man and did his job with finesse , John holds these same traits ...This job is no cake walk the demands are high, resolving issues takes a certain personality and commitment both go beyond there job description....I go to my office early , you know who is at City Hall at 6:00am most mornings JR and it opens at what time....
