What do you think of Atherton's appointment of a new building official?

Original post made by Richard Hine on Feb 1, 2007

Atherton has hired its senior building inspector, Mike Wasmann, to head the town's building department. It's been a tumultuous year for the department. Following the abrupt departure of the former chief building official June 30, the department's practices have been scrutinized in three internal audits, a longtime staffer has been reassigned, and it was revealed that a private investigator's report was commissioned by the city manager.
Recently, members of the San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury have been making inquiries into the department, and the town is facing potential litigation over a short-lived excavation surcharge on construction.
