Inspector Certification & Licensing Panel Discussion

Click here to view this photo gallery!

The City Inspector Certification & Licensing Panel Discussion was a success! The meeting had a great turn out and the speakers were very insightful and informative for those who are involved in building and re-modeling. Mike Green, the Electrical Inspector, informed the group of the proper amount of electrical outlets that are needed in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as presenting product solutions when working around windows and wet areas. The Lead Structural Inspector, Jim Stubbs, touched base on codes and necessary permits for structural changes while Gary Hile, Chief of Inspections and Lead Plumbing/Mechanical Inspector informed when a plumbing permit is required in re-modeling projects. To finish off the panel discussion, Al Nagel, Investigator IV/Program Manager for the state of Alaska educated the group on licenses and bonds, including the differences between a handy-man license and a contractor’s license.

A special thanks to the speakers  who took the time out of their day to educate us a little more on these important topics  and thanks to those who attended the meeting! It was a great time and we hope to see you at the next meeting!
