MADISON – Department of Commerce (Commerce) Secretary Mary P. Burke today
announced that Commerce has delegated the Town of Somers, Kenosha County,
the authority to provide limited plan review services as well as conduct
inspections of all commercial buildings located within its municipality.

“The Town of Somers joins over 160 other state municipalities that have been
delegated the authority to provide specified plan review services and
conduct inspections on behalf of Commerce,” Burke said. “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 agent delegation agreement, Russ Nolan will be responsible for
inspections and plan reviews for the Town of Somers.

Municipalities seeking further information regarding the commercial building
agent program should contact Henry Kosaryzcki, Commerce, at 608/212-0138.
Owners seeking submittal information to the scope of their projects can
contact the Town of Somers or Henry Kosarzycki.
