[ARCHIVED] Piperton Building Official Retires

City of Piperton Building Official, Tommie Johnson, announced his retirement, effective March 31st, after nearly 10 years of service to the citizens of Piperton and local building community.  Working in a challenging regulatory environment, Tommie was known for being fair and consistent in his decision making and was regarded as a knowledgeable and competent building professional.  During his tenure, Tommie grew the Building Department to a staff of four and oversaw a surge in residential, commercial and industrial building activity in the City, including the construction of the world headquarters for Pyramex and Power & Tel.  Perhaps Tommie’s greatest legacy, however, was his mentorship and taking a personal interest in his staff’s professional development.  The City of Piperton is certainly indebted to Tommie and he will be greatly missed.

Tommie is succeeded by Elizabeth Reed.  Elizabeth is a longtime Tennessee resident and graduate of the University of Memphis.  Elizabeth joined the Building Department in 2016, becoming the City’s first certified Permit Technician in September of 2019.  Elizabeth became a certified inspector in February 2020, and began inspecting for Piperton in July of the same year.  She has subsequently obtained several additional professional building credentials, and is now certified as a building, plumbing, and mechanical inspector for both residential and commercial construction. Welcome Elizabeth!
