Kent County Department Heads have selected BRIAN S. REED from the Planning Services Department as the February 2022 Employee of the Month.

 

Brian currently serves as a Building Codes Inspector II in the Inspection & Enforcement office and started his Kent County career as a Building Codes Inspector I in September 2018.

His primary duties include performing complex inspections of buildings in the course of construction for code compliance, code enforcement, preparation of reports, and maintenance of inspection records.

 

Recently, Brian has been working with a senior citizen living in an unsafe house that had to be condemned.

According to Planning Services Director Sarah Keifer, “Brian has consistently been an effective enforcement officer, more importantly he has demonstrated remarkable empathy for the people we serve. That empathy is just as often for the people we have to put in violation as it is for the complainants. I would suggest that this sort of kindness sets the standard for service to our community.”
