In times of need, people come together and in the City of Scottsdale, that idea is embodied as Operation Fix It.
“Ironically, Operation Fix It was founded at a time when our economy was in poor shape, in 2009,” said Scottsdale Operation Fix It Program Manager Michelle Holmes.
“We had several foreclosed properties, people walking away from their homes and there were homeowners struggling to make ends meet. The City of Scottsdale had no services available to help. At the time, I worked in code enforcement as an officer enforcing all of our city codes and ordinances.”
