KANEVILLE—The Village of Kaneville has been looking for a building code enforcer for many months, but budget constraints made the search more difficult. Village President Bob Rodney brought a new approach to the table during the Board of Trustees meeting on March 15.

“We’ve been looking into this for awhile,” Rodney said, “What if we look for a resident of the village to help us?”

After discussion from the trustees, they agreed it could be a possibility.

“There are many knowledgeable people in the village. I’m sure we could find someone to step up, and help us with this,” trustee Pat Hill said.

The Building Code Enforcer would make sure residents have the correct permits for the work they are doing, and if they do not have them, help them obtain one.

“It’s going to be a non-confrontational position,” Rodney said, “We’re just looking for someone to help us out.”

The village is asking for any interested residents to contact them.

“It will of course be a paid position,” Rodney said, “We will determine how much, and in what way, at a later date.”
