The city of Swift Current has decided to hire additional building inspectors to deal with the increase in residential construction.
The newly contracted inspectors will work throughout this year and into 2015.
Marty Salberg, the director of community development, says the increase is a result of the recent lot sale.
“The uptake on the residential lot sales was great and given we only have one building inspector to ensure construction is completed consistent with the National Building Code, we will be contracting out additional inspectors to assist us.”
The new inspectors will mostly deal with residential construction.
