Travel

The Des Moines City Council recently approved senior electrical inspector, Terry Bennigsdorf, to travel to Colorado Springs, Colo., from Sept. 14-18, to attend the Western Section of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors annual meeting. The meeting is said to provide opportunities to learn the latest techniques for installing and inspecting the new green systems that are coming online and will review changes in the 2014 National Electrical Code that will soon be adopted. This travel expense comes with a $1,393.84 price to local taxpayers. CV
