FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC - The man who has been serving as Allen County’s building commissioner on an interim basis has been named to the post on a permanent basis.

The Allen County Board of Commissioners on Monday selected George Smith for the position, which opened with the passing of John Caywood in October. Smith had previously been the assistant building commissioner and, before that, an electrical inspector in the department. His earlier career includes work as a commercial contractor.

“I want to thank our county commissioners for the opportunity to serve Allen County as building commissioner,” Smith said. “I look forward to working with all individuals involved in the construction industry to ensure that all of Allen County is a safe place for our families, citizens and visitors. We are growing exponentially and I am excited about our future.”
