North Hempstead Appoints Deputy Building Commissioner to Assist with Increase in Applications
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth recently announced the appointment of Gabriel Garcia to the position of Deputy Commissioner in the Town’s Building Department. Garcia has been a building inspector with the Department for nine years. In his new position as one of the two Deputy Commissioners in the Building Department, he will oversee issues such as illegal housing, rental registrations, public assembly at restaurants, inspections and enforcement. The Department’s other Deputy Commissioner oversees intake, plan reviews and records.
“This new deputy position is part of the Town’s long-range initiative that continues to upgrade and expand the services provided by the Building Department,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “Our goal is to have the department run as efficiently and effectively as possible and I am confident that Deputy Commissioner Garcia will do an outstanding job.”
Building Commissioner John Niewender said, “Adding an additional deputy commissioner will help with the increased volume of business that the Department is experiencing due to the uptick in requests for permits.”
