Jim Hines wears many hats in the city of Rockwood, but he soon may be wearing only one.
Hines said he has talked to Mayor James Watts about retiring in the fall and staying on as a contractor for a few days a week for building inspector duties.
He currently serves in the multiple roles of building inspector, city recorder and city administrator.
“I’m going to go ahead and retire, come back as a contract employee,” Hines said.
His responsibilities grew too heavy for the outgoing inspector.
