One-stop permit office opens at IW courthouse

By Lee Zion

News editor

The county held a party Thursday to celebrate its new permit office.

Although county planners profiled the office at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Sept. 18, the actual celebration was held just before the supervisors met for its Oct. 16 meeting.

County officials, staff and others got a walk-through tour and noshed on goodies at the event.

Sandra Robinson, planner with the county, described how the new system works. All the different offices are now in the same place, which makes things much easier for people who come in needing a permit.
