Two behind-the-scenes departments within the City of Marion have continued business as usual, despite the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic nearly one year ago.
Their direct supervisor, Building Commissioner Jerry Foustnight, said his employees, in addition to those of Animal Care & Control featured a few months ago, quickly adapted to the unprecedented situation, and continued to perform their essential job functions during the public and employee shutdown.
“The Building and Code Enforcement employees made great strides to be in the office and in the field every day issuing permits, conducting inspections, addressing code violations, and enforcing ordinances. Most importantly, they did whatever was necessary to continue to serve the public during such difficult and challenging times. I am very pleased that I have a staff that works together that I can depend on to come to work every day to serve the community and do their essential part to make Marion a great place for our citizens to live and work,” said Foustnight.
The Building and Code Enforcement Departments consist of the following employees who work under Foustnight whose job functions may or may not overlap between the two departments:
Adam Bowling, Code Enforcement Officer
John Case, Permit Compliance Officer
Jared Florence, Chief Code Enforcement Officer
Whitney Gilbert, Administrative Assistant
Brittany Kinsey, Administrative Assistant
Jason Konazeski, Code Enforcement Officer
