Morristown to find new Code Inspector


MORRISTOWN – The town Fire and Building Code Inspector, Lanetta Kay Davis resigned last month due to health issues.

The town Council will be tasked with filling her position at Tuesday’s meeting.

Town Clerk David J. Murray said he “doesn’t know what they are going to do” to fill the position.

“They haven’t advertised for it,” he said.

Ms. Davis’s official last day is on Nov. 30, but her last day at work was Nov. 2.

Mr. Murray said, in her absence, “I’ve had one letter and no phone calls [relating to codes].”

“I’m sure we’ll have someone temporarily in place Tuesday,” he said.

Ms. Davis could not be reached for this article.

Her time as Code Inspector saw free building templates put up on the town’s website that people can download and use for their homes to speed up the building process.

She also was an active crusader cracking down on the Amish community for any building code violations she found.

The next Code Inspector will face questions on how he or she will negotiate with the Amish.
