Annual County Building Safety Inspection Completed

The annual inspection to identify and correct life safety issues at four Starke County buildings has been completed. The inspection, conducted by Simplex Company of South Bend, found minor fire extinguisher, automatic sprinkler, and emergency lighting problems. Those problems were corrected, bringing the buildings up to code.

The highest cost for any of the corrections was $1016 at the highway department, where all trucks have been outfitted with fire extinguishers.

Other buildings inspected include the jail, courthouse, and annex building.
