PORT TOWNSEND — Matt Logue, a former building inspector for Port Townsend, has been appointed the city’s new building official.

“With an extensive background in the construction industry and a proven track record as the city’s building inspector, Logue brings a wealth of knowledge, skills and a strong commitment to community service to his new role,” City Manager John Mauro said in a press release.

Logue will oversee the day-to-day operations related to building permits administration, building inspection and other related activities.

His responsibilities include managing, coordinating and supervising the Building Division’s permit, plan review and inspection activities.

He also will serve as the lead in providing interpretations on code provisions and ensuring compliance with alternate materials, design and methods.

Logue has more than 30 years of construction experience, including 15 years as a self-employed general contractor and four years as a construction project manager. He has expertise in interpreting schematics, evaluating building plans and utilizing software such as Smart Gov E-permitting, according to the release.

“Matt’s commitment to customer service and his ability to understand unique situations will ensure positive outcomes and effective communication with builders, contractors and citizens,” Mauro said. “He has a proven track record of approaching personnel situations with professionalism and fairness.”

In his previous role as a building inspector for Port Townsend, Logue also gained experience working with the Planning Department and supporting code compliance efforts.

Emma Bolin, the city’s Planning and Community Development director, expressed her confidence in Logue’s appointment, stating:

“Matt is a true asset to the city team and the community.”

“Our community appreciates his extensive experience and ability to communicate complex regulations in an approachable manner,” Bolin said.

“He also has a deep understanding of the community’s goals about what is important for our quality of life to live, work and play here.”
