N-B Feedback: Should the county use a building inspector?

Bluffton Mayor Ted Ellis wants to know something, once and for all, before the city opts for a building code and a building inspector on its own: Does Wells County want to join in?

So Tuesday, Ellis is going to discuss the idea with the Wells County Commissioners in the morning and then possibly discuss it more with the city’s Common Council members in the evening.

The purpose for Ellis’s visit to the County Commissioners is a simple one: If the county does want to work with the city, even at this late date, accommodations can be made. If that doesn’t happen, the city will go it alone.

Tell us in the comments below if the county should follow the city's lead, or should the city stop pursuing the position? What are your concerns? What are your hopes?
