The Board of County Commissioners has adopted a Local Residential Construction Stimulus Plan, designed to help the flagging construction industry in the County by offering potential home owners incentives of about $10,000 to build a new home. Creation of jobs is the ultimate goal for the plan, and Permits and Inspections Director Dan DiVito talks about details of the plan, how excise taxes, permit fees and recordation taxes will be used to provide the incentives. DiVito talks about the downsizing of his department in light of the economic downturn.
