Building Dept. Adding Staff

July 10, 2019

This month’s corner brings news of new personnel. In other words, we are hiring additional staff. At the June County Council session, we were granted two positions for ACBD and one for ACCDC, which is the department that sells the parcels that fail to sell at a tax sale.

ACBD gained a senior property maintenance position as well as an additional commercial structural inspector. Through a process of promotion and hiring, all inspection trades including residential will now have four inspectors.

We have been fortunate in our recent hiring to get inspectors with dual certification and licensing, which means fewer trips if they can do multiple inspections on a site or subdivision. If you know of anyone that you believe would make a good inspector, encourage them to apply.

Finally, just a fact to throw out there that we assumed everyone knew. The contractor holding the building permit can view the “child” permits attached that particular permit. Those wondering if a permit passed simply log into the ACA site to review any “child” permit.

Best Regards,
John Caywood
Allen County Building Commissioner
