Town and county officials, struggling with deep cuts in property tax revenue, have agreed to combine the jointly funded building inspector and code enforcer positions into one job, a move expected to save the town and county some $20,000 a year.
County Board Chairman Ernie Kuhlman told Silverton Town Council members that the county was willing to chip in no more than $13,000 for the building inspector’s job in 2012.
In 2011, that position is expected to cost the town and county a total of $44,917. The town expects to spend another $20,567 for the code enforcer’s position. The town/county building inspector is Dee Jaramillo and the code enforcer is Keith Thompson.
By combining the positions into one 30-hour per week job, the total cost can be reduced from $65,484 to about $45,000.
