Quoting a news release, "We believe the local Plan Review services alone will provide a faster and more personal response to contractors, builders, and home-owners. Not only a faster turn-around for our customers, but the fees collected for those services will remain in Ketchikan. We will continue providing fire and building inspections within the city and our fire and building officials will now be the points-of-contact for questions related to building construction and fire code enforcement. This will provide contractors, builders, citizens, and architects with better "Person to Person" contact and the ability to know who they are working with on a local level. Fire Code enforcement and Construction files too will remain local, providing for easier access to records."
Representing the City of Ketchikan at today's signing of the agreement were Mayor Lew Williams, City Manager Karl Amylon, City Attorney Stephen Bradford, Building Officials Charles Dearden and Thomas Joseph; Public Works Director Clifton Allen, Fire Marshal Richard Tombaugh, and Fire Chief Jim Hill.
Representing the Alaska State Fire Marshal's Office were State Fire Marshal David Tyler, Assistant State Fire Marshal Kelly Nicolello, and Deputy Fire Marshal Robert Plumb.
