County building inspector resigns

Davie County Zoning Inspector Chris Nuckols resigned on May 26, and that’s about all county officials are saying.

County Manager Mike Ruffin said that it is a personnel matter, and that for him to release more information, county commissioners would have to adopt a resolution.

They have not.

County Attorney Ed Vogler also cited personnel laws, but said to his understanding, there are no issues with building inspections done while Nuckols was employed by the county.

Ruffin said that Nuckols’ position would not be filled, and inspections will fall under the Development Services department. Other inspectors are being trained for certifications that only Nuckols had, and in the meantime, inspectors from other counties are being used for the few inspections that only Nuckols was certified to complete.
