Baker named county codes inspector
Placeholder Image
It’s a codes equivalent of musical chairs. The county has retained the services of Josh Baker, the city’s former codes supervisor, to conduct inspections until someone can be found to replace Nolan Ming, who left the county July 31 to accept a position as the city’s codes director.The county’s Policy and Personnel Committee met Monday and approved hiring Baker.“We have a young man named Josh Baker who works for the city who has agreed to accept the codes job on a temporary basis until we can get somebody hired,” said Commissioner Ken Martin, committee chairman. “This will allow us to continue to do permits and not have to call the state in at this time.”Hiring someone temporarily will prevent local contractors from having to depend on the state for their inspection needs.
