Wasco County Getting Ready For Handling Building Code Services

Wasco County continues to move forward toward take over building code services by July 1.  County Commissioner Steve Kramer says they are on track, and the state of Oregon is assisting in the process.  Kramer says they have applications out for all the positions, and hope to have permit technicians hired shortly.  Kramer added fellow commissioner Scott Hege has been holding discussions with officials from Sherman, Gilliam, and Wheeler counties about whether they will contract for their building code services with Wasco County.  Mid-Columbia Council of Governments had handled that task for the four counties before that agency was dissolved last year.
