The Building Official is responsible for overseeing every aspect of a building before it's built as it's being built and after it's completed.

Our Building Official strives to educate himself about the continually changing International Building Codes, construction methods and professional building department management. 
He works closely with our contract planner, Kurt Danison of Highlands Associates to provide the City with short and long range planning.  Mr. Danison provides maps and develops the City Comprehensive Plans and Zoning Regulations
