The City of Fayetteville as of Aug. 31 will be outsourcing the its Building Department functions to SAFEbuilt Georgia, a contractor already providing these services to 18 other jurisdictions on the south side of Atlanta, including Peachtree City.

“With the recent departure of the city’s building official and the retirement of one of our two building inspectors, the city evaluated bringing in new personnel compared with outsourcing Building Department functions,” said Director of Community and Economic Development David Rast, who supervises the Building Department. “The economic uncertainty played a part in us making the recommendation to outsource these services.”

Rast said the city has been working closely with SAFEbuilt representatives for several weeks to ensure there will be minimal if any changes to the plan submittal, review and inspection process.
