Brad Cherry’s last day as building inspector in Jasper County was April 28.  He started work today, May 1, in Greene County as their building inspector.

Many builders and home owners in Jasper County will not be shedding tears over Cherry leaving.  The 30 day delays in getting inspections and the nit-picking of every project  he “inspected” will not be missed. 

Cherry also tried to have home owners get permits for putting in a new hot water heater, replacing the HVAC, and such things as adding a rail to the front porch.  Some people paid for these permits, while others fought it. 

It will be interesting to see how the folks on Lake Oconee and in Greene County will react to Brad Cherry’s “inspections.”

    We haven’t had a decent building inspector in a long time in Jasper County. Brad might be an ok guy, but is definitely on a power trip, and does not know his job. I spent a bunch of money using HIS SUGGESTION to fix a problem, EXACTLY like he told me to do it, and THEN he came back and told me it wouldn’t satisfy code. No common sense whatsoever, and nit-picky about little things that do not matter for safety or construction. At least he seems to be honest, unlike the last guy before him who was an absolute dishonest crook. Jasper County, please do a better job finding our next inspector.

    Good riddance to an arrogant ass. I pity the the people of any county that has to deal with this power tripping bureaubrat. Pray that Jasper County never sees another like him..

    There really is something wrong with people who enjoy exerting authority over other people.

    Remember the BTK serial killer? He was a compliance officer who loved to measure people’s grass to see if it was too long!

    Reminds me of the code enforcement officer who came to our house. She told my husband our grass was too tall. He looked at her with incredulity and asked how tall it had to be to be out of compliance. She said 12 inches. We have zoysia, which cannot grow to 12 inches if it ate Miracle Grow for breakfast everyday! She also warned him for allowing about one inch of his tire to protrude over the edge of the concrete driveway. It did not even touch the grass, but she still said it was a violation.


    Dennis Rader investigates the deadly work of serial killer Dennis Rader, known as the ‘BTK Killer,’ who terrorized Wichita, Kansas, for nearly 20 years.

    Arrest and Imprisonment

    It is not known why Rader seemed to stop killing. He had left ADT in the late 1980s and started working as a Park City compliance supervisor in 1991. In his new position, Rader was known to be a stickler for the rules. He measured the height of people’s lawns and chased stray animals while toting a tranquilizer gun. According to reports, Rader took pleasure in exerting his limited authority over his neighbors and other members of the community.

    Best Regards
