BETHEL — Bethel’s new Code Enforcement Officer is Courtney McPherson, of Bethel. Before taking the position Jan. 29, she had been Planning Board Assistant and Assistant to the Assessor. She helped the Code Enforcement Officer when needed, as well.

Her desk in the picture window of the Cole Building will stay just where it is, she said

McPherson said she is excited to learn new skills. She said she has known some of what the job requires being in the office beside previous CEO’s.

“It’s exciting to do the training, go out in the field and interact with people more,” said McPherson. “Everyday is different, when it comes to code. Who knows who is going to walk through the door and have a question about something.” She is currently studying for her external (septic) plumbing inspector’s license. Internal plumbing is next.

She said she’ll lean on Newry’s CEO Joelle Corey and Oxford’s CEO Kingston Brown for any help she may need.

She said Brown will inspect any applications submitted by her husband Mark, a local plumber. Their children are Landon, 12 and Emma, 14.
