Just received word that Building and Neighborhood Services Manger Tom Grant has been let go. If so, it's not good for either the rental inspection or the neighborhood inspection program as both would probably go on hiatus until another manager is hired. After all, I don't believe those unfilled retail inspection positions have been filled yet.
Update: The Southern has some more details. Cutting Grant's position saves the city about $65, 000 a year and loses some 15 years of experience that the city really could use with the boom in building on the south and west side of the city.
