No Decision Yet From Wasco County Commission On Building Codes
Wasco County Commissioners made no decisions on whether to have the County take over responsibility for the building codes program. State officials have indicated they want the County to do it, and will not guarantee a local office if it is turned over to them. County Commissioner Scott Hege says they need the state to provide direction on how the nearly four million dollars left in reserves from the defunct Mid-Columbia Council of Governments building codes program should be divided between all the counties that took part. The Commission will discuss the topic again at its December 19 meeting.
