Association member Anthony Malone voiced concerns for the county ending its codes inspection service.
Warren County government will not end its Building and Environmental Codes Department, says County Executive Herschel Wells.“I’m going to tell you right now that this office won’t be closed, whether he stays or goes,” said Wells of codes director Richard Thompson. “You won’t be going to a state inspector.”The statement was made during a county Budget and Finance Committee meeting after Warren County Home Builders Association member Anthony Malone voiced concerns for the county ending its codes inspection service, which would require local builders to rely on state inspectors.“So, this office is going to remain open?” asked Malone. “Is that what you’re saying?”Wells replied, “Yes.”“That’s what we needed to know,” said Malone.
