Beacon Names New Building Inspector

Kolb will begin in January

The Beacon City Council on Nov. 19 approved Mayor Randy Casale’s appointment of George Kolb Jr. as the city’s incoming building inspector. Kolb, the building inspector since 2011 in Union Vale, a Dutchess County town of about 5,000 residents, will succeed Tim Dexter, who is retiring at the end of the year.

Kolb comes to Beacon with 37 years of experience, including five years as a village trustee in Wappingers Falls.

“George has big shoes to fill but I think people in this community will realize we’ve got a real good building inspector,” Casale said. “He stood out above all the other candidates.”
