Congratulations to Roseville’s Building Codes Coordinator Don Munson. He is retiring on January 20, after more than 18 years with the City of Roseville.
Prior to working for Roseville, Munson spent eight years at the City of Plymouth.
“The City of Roseville will really miss Don Munson,” said Community Development Director Paul Bilotta. “His steady hand and strategic thinking have led the Code Enforcement Division through many challenges including implementing new programs, large scale developments and storm recovery. He leaves behind a legacy of well-crafted policies and procedures as well as building a highly skilled code enforcement team. People like Don Munson don’t come around very often and we have been very fortunate that he chose to serve Roseville for all of these year,” said Bilotta.
When Munson first began working for Roseville he was responsible to oversee building permit issuance and inspections and land-use violations. The job responsibilities grew over the years. In addition to an ever-increasing number of building permits, the division took on other responsibilities including abatements, the neighborhood enhancement program and rental licensing programs.
Munson said he won’t miss the disagreements with contractors, architects or others, but he will certainly miss working and interacting with a great group of people – including fellow employees, residents, contractors and architects.
He is looking forward to doing a bit of traveling and sightseeing with his wife, spending more time with the grandkids, and scrounging through junkyards for items to restore old cars and motorcycles.
The City will recognize Munson contributions at a retirement party on Wednesday, January 20 at 2:00 p.m. at Roseville City Hall, 2660 Civic Center Drive. Members of the public are invited to attend.
