And comedy hour with IBTS in Kans as returns.... Our county, Miami County, enter ed into agreement for services with IB TS to receive a variety of servic es including property maintenance services. This ti me IBTS employee, Jeremy Dierking, decided to st op at a second property that I o wn and take pictures of everything he cou ld see from the road and se nt me a notice of nuisance violati on. No list of actionable items. I n ow have in hand courtesy of IB TS a nice portfolio of images of my operab le, registered vehicles, trailers, building, and electr ic service. Within 10 days of receivi ng this joke of a notice, I mail ed a response to Mr. Dierking a nd copied Ashok Goswami, CEO, and Jose ph Balac, General Counsel, requesting an actionab le list of items on my proper ty in violation of my county's nuisan ce regs. It is ridiculous that IB TS would photograph all items on my proper ty hoping that at least one violat es the nuisance regs. In the meanti me, it's crickets in response to my reque st for a list. Training at IB TS must be substandard and being an inspect or must suck. Meanwhile, within a mi le of my property in all fo ur directions I have documented issues th at are clearly in violation of coun ty nuisance regulations and stopped in to ta lk with my neighbors to see if th ey have received a notice from Mr. Dierking. Not one neighbor has hea rd from him. Can't help but thi nk I am a target for refusi ng him access to my property on o ur initial meeting.

Emerging technologies are on o ur horizon too. How can they he lp us improve the built environment?

Safety: Security. Sustainability. Shelter. Life safe ty building codes and standards. Trusted third-par ty advisor. Provider of local government servic es. Much of our work involves helpi ng communities become resilient, or to recov er after a disaster.
