09/28/2005: "Whatever It Takes"
Fred Schaller in his "new" work space
Building Inspector Fred Schaller does not think that his reward for being called to duty at 4:00 am on the morning of the SJC annex building fire was be one of the few to still have an office in the building, but he is happy to have been able to find a small space in the building to continue his work as a building plans reviewer and inspector.
The other staff members are scattered about the county offices, working as best they can, under the circumstances, to keep the paper work flowing. There are two Permit Coordinators holed up in the basement "break room" in the Court House (photo), there is a Planning Staff member sharing an office at the Health Department, and The Guardian even found one using a computer in the Prosecuting Attorney's office. "Whatever it takes", seems to be the order-of-the-day. Public Works plans to have the building repairs completed by Oct. 3rd.
