Design, Environment & Construction Division will be involved in a day-long retreat on

Wednesday, December 14th.

For this reason, most of the staff will be away from the office on this day and available ONLY for critical requests and emergencies



The purpose of the retreat is to fully unify the DEC team  now that recent hires have been made (Kay and Michelle) and current staff members have returned from medical leave (Tony and Andrea).  We will focus on taking stock of our responsibilities and identify opportunities for innovation and improvement.



Note that the Intake Office will remain open as former SAFEbuilt, Inc./Decatur inspector Kim Craig  (currently with SAFEBuilt, Inc.) will offer basic permit tech services from 9AM-4PM.
