Jackson County leaders are considering a proposal to contract with the city of Jefferson’s building inspector to handle building inspections for the county.
At a board of commissioners meeting Monday night, planning director Gina Mitsdarffer presented a plan to contract with the City of Jefferson to use its building inspector, Danny Atkins, on an as-needed basis. The county would use Atkins a minimum of 10 hours per week and as many as 20 hours per week.
The county would pay the city $39.25 per hour for Atkins’ services, which would include his salary, benefits, workers compensation and insurance.
The BOC will vote on this proposal when it meets at 6 p.m. on Monday at the courthouse.
The county building inspector position is vacant following the retirement of Jerry Lord, who was working 20 hours per week.
