The City of Greer has met twice in the last two months with Home Builders actively building in the city. The city recently announced several new rules and procedures to help improve delivery of services to the industry.
- The deadline to inspect next-day inspections has been extended to 7 p.m. Inspections for Monday or after a holiday will be accepted until 7 p.m. the night before as well. However, to avoid a reinspection fee, cancellations of inspection requests must be made by 8:30 a.m.
- The city also has committed to attempt to have the same inspector perform reinspections. However, this is not a guarantee.
The city also is working with Home Builders to review new rules announced by Greer CPW related to release of meters.
The Greer Commission of Public Works announced Michael Richard as the next general manager to lead the company, replacing Jeff Tuttle, who left in November. Richard will finish out his obligation with his current employer before starting at Greer CPW on March 6.
“Mike’s educational background plus his significant management experience proved to be a strong combination as we narrowed the field of national candidates. We know Mike is a great fit with Greer’s four utility system and the Commission welcomes the Richard family to the Greer community,” said Perry J. Williams, CPW chairman, in the release.
“My wife Cindi has family in the Wilmington, N.C. area and we’ve always loved the Carolinas. We are excited to be closer to family and continue the great foundation already set in Greer,” said Richard, in the release.
There is another building codes class being offered by the City of Greenville and the City of Greer that builders are encouraged to attend.
Buddy Skinner will host a workshop on the new codes on Thursday, July 21, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the 1st floor conference room at City Hall. He will review and highlight the important code changes and offer his enforcement interpretations.
