I could not believe my good fortune when the opportunity came to become part of this dynamic city’s work force. Our building department is a small but efficient work force that has excellent leadership and a very dedicated staff. I was immediately impressed with my coworkers efforts to ensure code compliance met state standards. However the best part is, that it is done in a way that is encouraging and educating to the contractors and developers we work with. It is very satisfying to see new growth in the city advance in a way that is compliant and cooperative.
