The City of Fernandina Beach announces that Stephen Beckman has been appointed as the City's Building Official. Mr. Beckman began his duties on Monday, August 19.
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Mr. Beckman's experience includes working as a general contractor, and in various capacities in the City of Naples' building department. He was the Building Official for the City of Cape Coral before moving to Honduras for one year to manage a scuba diving resort.
Ready to move back to America to be closer to family (three children and one granddaughter), Mr. Beckman was excited to see an opening with the City. He and his wife visited Fernandina Beach for a conference about three years ago and fell in love with the "small, historic community". They look forward to exploring the outdoors, fishing, cycling and diving at the beach!
