According to a memo released by Spring Valley Demeza Delhomme, Deputy Building Inspector Manny Carmona was promoted to be in charge of the department’s staff from now on, Building Inspector Walter Booker’s position of three years. Booker will now be in charge of planning, zoning, and building permits. In an interview with the Journal News Delhomme stated that the change will result in a more efficient building department, according to him employees agree that Carmona is a better manager for the staff. The memo that was released February 5 did not give a reason for the decision. Village Trustee and liaison to the Building Department, Anthony Leon, stated that backlash can be expected from both the department and the village and it will be discussed at the next board meeting before the village falls into crisis.
