John Brookins, head of the City of Northfield’s Building Inspection Division and the City’s Building Official, no longer works for the City. Although his name is still listed on that web page, I’ve confirmed with Mayor Rossing that his last day was Friday, May 22. Although the City probably won’t be commenting on the reason for his departure, it appears to have been sudden since Brookins had an update in the 5/22 Friday Memo. Brookins’ tenure has seen controversy. See blog posts here or here, or any number of stories on the Northfield News site, for example, here.
