MADISON – Department of Commerce (Commerce) Secretary Cory L. Nettles announced today that the department has delegated Waushara County the authority to provide limited plan review services as well as conduct inspections of all commercial buildings located within their county. Municipalities located within Waushara County performing reviews and inspections on behalf of the State of Wisconsin will remain agent municipalities.

“Waushara County joins over 150 other state municipalities that have been delegated the authority to provide specified plan review services and conduct inspections on behalf of the Department of Commerce,” said Nettles. “This gives municipalities the opportunity to provide services on behalf of the state as well as their own enforcement activities on projects within the scope of their delegated authority. Typically, municipalities can provide more immediate service to local projects.”

Under the agent delegation agreement, Patrick Nault will be responsible for inspections and plan reviews for Waushara County.

Municipalities seeking further information regarding the commercial building agent program should contact Henry Kosarzycki, Commerce, at 262/548-8615. Owners seeking submittal information to the scope of their projects can contact Waushara County or Henry Kosarzycki at Commerce.
