The village of Downsville had no way to issue a building permit when it required one from contractors doing work on renovations at Downsville Charter School.
At their meeting on July 14, the Downsville Board of Aldermen approved a resolution to contract with the Institute for Building Safety and Technology to provide building inspection services.
Part of that agreement designates IBTS as the agency that will review building permits submitted by contractors or private citizens who wish to build or modify structures within the village’s corporate limits.
Louisiana Tech’s Technology Business Development Center (TBDC)ewew and the National Institute of Standards and Technology will host a cyber security workshop Thursday.
Richard Kissel, who works with NIST’s Computer Security Division, will conduct the workshop, which will focus on helping business owners assess their security to identify necessary safeguards, weigh potential loss and prepare for cyber threats.
