This in from county spin doc Michael “Big Sexy” Grider (and I thought I was long-winded):
"Rather than a clipboard, carbon copy forms and a digital camera, Knox County Codes officials now go to building and code inspection sites equipped with an iPad loaded with a special app developed by Knox County's Information Technology Department.
The app is being used in the inspection of new construction, as well as in codes enforcement efforts.
The app gives inspectors the ability to submit inspection reports and photographs from a single device in the field. By using the new iPad app, inspectors will be able to conduct more inspections and back-office staff can process them more quickly, increasing the efficiency of the inspection process overall."
You can read more from the release right smack here.
From what I understand, county officials have shown their counterparts in the city this app. Not sure at this point whether they'll use it.
