Building official nominees line up for Bradenton Beach post

There are some familiar faces within the ranks of applicants for the building official position in Bradenton Beach.

The post became vacant Feb. 23 upon the sudden leave of Ed Mc Adam, who later resigned after allegations of sexual harassment were levied against him by the city's code enforcement officer, Gail Garneau.

Repeated requests for further information on the nature of the allegations by The Islander on the matter have not been forthcoming.

City commissioners advertised the vacant position in early March. As of last Friday, nine applicants had responded.

Perhaps most notable in the list of building official candidates is Kevin Donohue, who is the current building official in Anna Maria City. He previously was a building inspector in New York before taking his present post in Anna Maria.

Other Island residents who have applied for the job include David E. Greene, of Holmes Beach, who works for the Manatee County School District as project director in construction services.

Local contractor Daniel J. Gilford of Bradenton Beach is head of Daniel J. Gilford and Associates Construction Consultants, which deals with single-family and multiple-dwelling construction.

Dan Sack, president of MarSac Development and Realty, is based in Holmes Beach and was a contractor with GSR Development LLC during some of that now troubled company's construction efforts.

Timothy E. Matthews of Palmetto is a self-employed contractor, former corrections officer with the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, and also a reserve officer for the Bradenton Beach Police Department, who has also applied for the building official position.

Licensed building officials applying for the job include Lawrence George Nayman, current building official at Indian Shores; and Mark A. Grenier, who served as building official for several Florida counties, including Putnam, Orange, Flagler and Volusia.

Also among the applicants are Ron Wiley, a building inspector for the city and county of Sarasota; and Michael J. Aerts of St. Petersburg, a commercial construction inspector.

No date for interviews or a schedule for city commission approval of a nominee has yet been made by city officials.

M.T. Causely, a private firm specializing in handling county and municipal building services, has been retained by the city to handle it's building department services until a full-time building official is hired.
