Changes coming for Building Department

by Mary Keck

November 28, 2012

Independence Township’s Building Department will see some changes in the coming year.

Employees in the Building Department previously reported to former Superintendent Bart Clark; however, they may soon answer to Director David Belcher.

Not only will employees report to a different supervisor, the Building Department is also seeking two new hires: a fulltime building inspector and a part time code enforcer.

After 14 years of service, Code Enforcement Officer David Poole resigned.

“He will be missed,” said newly seated Supervisor Pat Kittle.

Although the township had already approved a new hire for the open fulltime position, the prospective employee found work elsewhere.

According to Kittle, the board will likely reinstate all the duties of Building Department Director to David Belcher.

The board’s next meeting will take place on December 4 at 7:30 p.m. in Township Hall on Waldon Road.
