East Bethel to provide building inspection services to Oak Grove

The East Bethel City Council Nov. 19 approved an agreement with the city of Oak Grove under which East Bethel will provide building inspection services for that city starting Jan. 1, 2013.

As part of the proposal, East Bethel’s building inspection staff will provide office hours at Oak Grove City Hall from 8:30 a.m. to noon one day per week, or the same number of hours at another mutually agreed on time.

The service agreement with Oak Grove is expected to generate about $60,000 in additional revenue for East Bethel in 2013, assuming that Oak Grove’s inspection needs stay at about the same level as in 2012.

Oak Grove’s building inspection services are currently provided by Inspectron, Inc.
