FORMER CITY BUILDING INSPECTOR
LEBANON — Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 24 at the Ligon & Bobo Funeral Home for former Lebanon Building Inspector Robert J. Robinson. Mr. Robinson, 68, died Sunday, Nov. 21, 2010, at Elmcroft in Lebanon.
He served as the building inspector for the City of Lebanon during the early 1990s. According to former Lebanon Mayor Bobby Jewell, Mr. Robinson was appointed city building inspector in 1990 and served in that post for some four years.
To fill the position, Jewell said yesterday he had called a meeting of local building contractors to explain that the city was adopting the Southern Building Code and what impact that might have on them and their businesses. He said in the meeting he explained that there was a vacancy in the city building inspector’s position and asked if anyone in that group would have an interest in taking over the job.
