Welcome Rick!

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

There were many smiles in the Community Development Department yesterday.

The good cheer had a lot do with the feeling that we just hired the perfect person to help make our Department better; while some had to do with all the sweets we ate to celebrate his arrival!

Rick Oberlin is our new Building Inspector.  Yesterday was his first day on the job.  He comes to us after six years of working as an inspector for the City of Flint.

Rick will join Building Official Jeff Spencer and Building Inspector Hosea Crumpler in ensuring that the buildings and structures in our town are safe places to live and work.

With a focus on serving and protecting the customer, Rick will be a key player in helping us facilitate project approvals and assist builders with meeting their construction deadlines.

Welcome Rick!  We’re glad you joined our team.
