Zon­ing ad­min­is­tra­tor re­signs to take po­si­tion in Wash­ing­ton

Branin Bur­dette will no longer be New­ton County’s zon­ing ad­min­is­tra­tor.

Board of Com­mis­sion­ers Chair­man Kathy Mor- gan made the an­nounce­ment at Tues­day’s meet­ing as she thanked Bur­dette for his ser­vices to the county, say­ing he has done an ex­cel­lent job.

Bur­dette’s last day with the county will be Aug. 29. He said he will move back to his home­town of Seattle, Wash. to take a new po­si­tion as a zon­ing in­spec­tor.

Bur­dette said he pre­vi­ously worked for the city of Seattle for three years, but he was laid off. He said he was on a re-call list with the city, and they called him to in­form him of an open po­si­tion.

He has been work­ing as a zon­ing ad­min­is­tra­tor for New­ton County since De­cem­ber 2010. He said he has en­joyed work­ing for the county be­cause it has given him the op­por­tu­nity to learn how to write new codes and or­di­nances. Bur­dette said the county will ad­ver­tise for a zon­ing in­spec­tor in a va­ri­ety of ways. He said they will ad­ver­tise locally, na­tion­ally and statewide on web­sites that re­volve around zon­ing and plan­ning. There is no word on when that process will be­gin.
