the code enforcement officer/building inspector resides in my department offices but does not report to me but to the fire department
it seems like alot of people in here have code as part of your "domain"
for those of you that have it separate like me, how does it work for you?
most of the time it actually works fine, it just gets odd when:
- i don't agree with her interpretation on something and i have to forward it anyway, or
- if she doesn't like a zoning change i'm working on because she doesn't like change (we've always done it this way kind of thing), or
- when a mistake is made, avoiding the blame game (unprofessional, imho) without taking the hit all by yourself
luckily, this doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's just, well, odd - as in the situation at hand shows that the position shouldn't be separate
