Commissioners appoint Steve Howard as new Building Inspector

During a special meeting of the Marshall County Commissioners on Monday, Steve Howard was appointed as the new Building Inspector for the county.

Commissioner Kevin Overmyer stated that they had interviewed several candidates last Wednesday. 

After the commissioners voted unanimously to appoint Howard, Overmyer congratulated him on the appointment. 

“We look forward to coming on board,” Overmyer said.

“I appreciate the opportunity, I hope I work out for you,” Howard said. 

“We know you will,” Overmyer replied.

“We wouldn’t be here if you wouldn’t,” Commissioner Stan Klotz agreed.

Howard is filling the vacancy left when the commissioners decided not to re-appoint Chuck DeWitt who had served in that position for almost eight years.

Howard said he planned on starting on Monday, Feb. 1.
