IXU.lWt OiKl UU.t IIVIU tnv /til District seat since 1973. will face opposition again on the Nov. 2 bal lot. Fayetteville attorney Jim Cooper announced Tuesday that he plans to file this Friday.

Calabash Adopts Fee For Repeat Building Inspections 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 S30. 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 site. "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. Th?* hoard eventually voted 5-to 1. with Alvin l.eisev dissenting, to require the $30 re-inspection fee "at the discretion of the building inspec tor." In other business: 5 The board voted 4-to-2. with Noe and Teddy Altreuter dissenting, in favor of five resolutions to facili tate their approval last week of $150.000 in sewage system engi neering fees. Altreuter said she had some "very serious worries" about the town's ongoing plans for a joint sewer system with Sunset Beach. Noe said the town should have a ref erendum before going into debt to fund the project. ? Agreed to donate $500 to the Friends of West Brunswick Library to help keep the Shallotte library branch operating at a temporary lo cation during a six-month renova tion scheduled to begin in March.
