Your Home Builders Association of Greenville held the first Government Affairs Forum this week at the HBA Office. The guest speaker was John Castile, City Manager of the City of Greenville.

Nearly 20 HBA members turned out to discuss city issues with Castile. Among the issues discussed were balancing growth and development with density, staff reductions in the building inspections department, code enforcement issues and keeping the permit process up-to-date, future plans for moving the city forward in a new economy, and reforming business licenses.

The HBA committed to Castile that the association will work with the city to help it solve problems in a manner that does not contribute to delays and expenses for Home Builders.

A light breakfast and coffee was sponsored by Quinn-Satterfield.

The next Government Affairs Forum is being planned for early December in conjunction with the Remodelers Forum. Stay tuned for more information, including the meeting date.
