Jackson County leaders agreed Monday on a proposal to contract to use the City of Jefferson’s building inspector to handle building inspections for the county.
At an earlier board of commission meeting, 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 will pay the city $39.25 per hour for Atkins’ services, which includes his salary, benefits, workers compensation and insurance.
The county building inspector position is vacant following the retirement of Jerry Lord, who was working 20 hours per week.
