Warren building official Bill Nash resigns


Warren Building Official William Nash resigned his position Tuesday morning, saying he'll give one more month to the town before his last day of work on Friday, June 4.

Mr. Nash said Tuesday afternoon that an opportunity arose, and he took it.

"I was offered an opportunity to continue to be involved in the code profession on a regional basis," he wrote in an e-mail to the Times. "It was something I simply could not refuse."

Mr. Nash's role in town government had been subject of much discussion over the past year, as Warren sought to augment his department by creating a zoning enforcement position. However, that position has not been funded by the town.

This is the tip of the iceberg.

BTW the next building inspector should be a part-time employee.
