Fee For Repeat
BY ERIC C ARLSON
Building contractors working in
Calabash will no longer get an un
limited number of free return visits
from the building inspector since the
board of commissioners voted Tues
day to approve a re-inspection fee of
B"il<ling inspector John Fazekas
told the board that he sometimes
gets called back to the same job site
seven or eight times to re-inspect
portions of a building project. He re
quested that the new fee be adopted
to encourage builders have their
work properly completed before
calling for an inspection.
Commissioner Ed Schaack, the
town's former building inspector,
said some contractors abuse the sys
tem by making the town perform the
function of construction foreman by
repeatedly telling workers how to
the job is to be done.
"When I told one contractor what
we had in mind, he actually asked
me, 'You mean we're going to get
charged for an extra inspection even
though we don't know what we're
doing?'" Schaack said.
Commissioner Keith Hardee, who
is also a builder, said most contrac
tors consider Calabash's building in
spection policies to be some of the
best in the area. Most town's charge
higher fees and many require 24
hours advanced notice before a
building inspector will visit a job
"No other town gives that kind of
service. You call him up and he
comes. You don't need to wait 24
hours." Hardee said. "Most builders
I know appreciate that. They won't
mind $30 tor n rc*inspcc!lon
if they can get it done that fast."
Commissioner Bob Noe ques
tioned whether the town was being
too harsh in requiring a re-inspec
tion fee for every return visit. He
noted that the inspector frequently
asks for a minor correction and then
has to return to make sure the
change has been made. Me suggest
ed that the reinspection fee be
charged only if a second re-inspec
tion is requested.
