To the editor:
This is an email I sent to the Mayor, aldermen and Jeff Muenkel. I have been employed with the city for 13 years as the lead inspector, attached with this letter was a proposal for service, I did not include the proposal as I don’t need that out there yet but it was a very good proposal for the City of Muskego. I just thought I would keep you informed of the inner workings at this time
City of Muskego Aldermen,
Although I do not agree with some of the council’s decisions to outsource any department, through the discussions on the matter, I kept hearing several Aldermen commenting on how it will be tough to lose our current inspector’s talent, skills, and knowledge. Over the years the City has spent a good deal of money providing training and licensing to our inspectors – to simply discard that training, time and money spent, would not be a benefit or good business decision. The City of Muskego is a 3rd class City by population and continues to grow. Codes and licensing become stricter in a 3rd Class City as population increases requiring continuous education to maintain current licenses.
As a result of the Council’s recent decision to outsource the Building Inspection department, I feel I have a solution to keep that same talent within the city. I have presented my proposal to Mayor Chiaverottii and by copy of this e-mail am presenting it to the Council for review. Keeping the professional building services, preventing the elimination of 2 positions and providing a seamless transition to both residents and contractors alike is what this proposal will offer.
I respectfully request your consideration of the attached proposal.
Lead Building Inspector
City of Muskego
