This is the first such event to be held by the county, said Marshall County building inspector Chuck DeWitt.
â€śBeing new to the job, I just kind of listened to areas we had problems with,â€ť said DeWitt. â€śUsually things we have problems with are (because of a) lack of education and knowledge about what needs to be done, not malice.â€ť
