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
