PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ In the course of considering changing Marshall County building inspector Chuck DeWitt‚Äôs position from part-time to full-time, county council members happened upon another topic‚ÄĒthe amount that the county actually receives for doing building inspections.
DeWitt, who does all the building inspections for the county‚Äôs communities, collects a fee of $50 per project. This amount is the same no matter how far DeWitt travels to do the inspection, or how many times he visits the same project.
