Honeycutt's retirement doesn't mean he'll stop working

GLASGOW — TOP PHOTO: David Honeycutt, center electrical and building inspector for the City of Glasgow, embraces his "replacements" at the beginning of a reception in City Council Chambers in his honor. He is retiring after 21 years of employment with the city.

Rather than having a single person doing both types of inspections, city officials are making the building inspector job part time, combining it with the planning administrator position, held by Thom Kendall, right, that is also becoming part time. The city and county have reached an agreement that will allow Barren County Electrical Inspector Jim Griffin, left, to conduct electrical inspections for the city.

He is retiring after 21 years of employment with the city. Honeycutt’s plans include farming, doing inspections and electrical work on a contract basis, possibly becoming involved in an enterprise to bring the option of natural gas for powering motor vehicles to Glasgow and serving Barren County in whatever way seems appropriate.
