Adam Price named “Code Official of the Year” for Second Year

FARRAGUT, TN – Farragut Codes Officer Adam Price is the first to be named Code Official of the Year by the Eastern Chapter of the Tennessee Building Officials Association (ETBOA) for two consecutive years.

“Adam is a valuable part of our team here at the Town of Farragut, and to receive this award two years in a row from his peers in the building community is great recognition of his dedication and leadership as a building inspector,” says Town Administrator David Smoak.

Price received the honor for 2016 at the organization’s recent annual training and safety meeting in Sevierville. He served as president of ETBOA in 2016.

“This is a great honor for Adam and the Town of Farragut,” says Director of Community Development Mark Shipley. “As acknowledged through such awards, the Town is recognized in the area as a leader in codes enforcement. The Town’s two other building inspectors and the fire marshal have also received the Code Official of the Year award. Clearly, the Code Enforcement Division of the Town of Farragut has some outstanding employees and I am very proud of their accomplishments.”

The ETBOA award recognizes codes officers that are knowledgeable, hard-working and dedicated to their community and profession. The organization has approximately 200 members.

Colin Cumesty, fire inspector for Rural/Metro Fire Department and the Town of Farragut, was elected president of ETBOA for 2017. With his election, all five building and fire inspectors for the Town of Farragut have served or are currently serving as president of the organization.

“We take a lot of pride in what we do,” Price says of his department. “We’re all very passionate about what we do and strive to be the best. We strive to be leaders in the region. It seems to work.”
