Earlier this summer, Brad Roast, long-time Building Official for the City of Beaverton retired. In order to fill the vacancy left behind by Brad, HBA staff accepted an invitation to participate in an interview panel to identify qualified candidates for the building official role with the city. After several interviews, the city hired Chris Ragland, former Building Official in Tualatin. According to the city, Chris’ focus on customer service and problem solving make him a good fit for the organization. As part of his orientation to his new role in Beaverton, Chris will be meeting with the HBA to get to know the organization and continue the working relationship established by his predecessor and the HBA.
