In April, the county voted to name Coy Neat as its electrical inspector. Now, Marion County’s incorporated cities may need to consider if they want to name their own inspector.
Michael Shannon, the county’s former electrical inspector, now serves as the State Electrical Inspector for the Department of Housing, Building and Construction. He told the Marion County Fiscal Court during its Dec. 5 meeting that the state would be enforcing a law that has been on the books since the 1980s.
"They are no longer going to be ignored," Shannon said.
