Verbal confirmations until the final inspection card was a problem in the past for the city, Shaffstall said.
They also hope to cut down on mistakes on final drafts.
By the end of the 10 days in plan review, the plan should come out correct, Shaffstall said.
“That’s the idea, that we quit getting so many markups on a final draft.”
In addition to the normal fire review responsibilities, the city’s fire marshal, Brent Sauble, will be the interim building official, as well.
“Obviously the city is going to look to adding to personnel. Depending on how the economy shapes up and how the summer budget shapes up, we’ll add someone in development services but at a director level position,” Shaffstall said. “Becky was a planning tech/code officer. Jason was an inspector. We’ll probably look for someone with a little more plan review experience, a little more building official experience.”
