  • Deputy Administrator DeBonis gets community partner award

    The Southern Arizona Home Builders Association has recognized Pima County Deputy County Administrator Carmine DeBonis for his work in alliance with the business community. SAHBA
    Southern Arizona Home Builders Association (SAHBA) presented Debonis  with its Community Builder Award at a luncheon event in January. The award recognizes community partners whose collaborative work helps build a more prosperous Southern Arizona.

    “Carmine and many others in our Public Works Departments work tirelessly to develop ways to best serve the public,” County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry said. “This award recognizes the hard work and commitment to making our community better that Carmine has shown throughout his career with Pima County.”

    SAHBA honored DeBonis with the Community Builder Award for the work he and others in Pima County did to improve the development review and planning processes, and increase efficiencies throughout Public Works departments. 

    Some of the improvements DeBonis oversaw included launching a Building Inspection Tracking website that allows customers to determine when their building inspection will occur. The website shows customers where their inspection lands in the daily schedule and at what time an inspector will arrive.

    The site works in coordination with a vehicle routing system Development Services developed to maximize the efficiency of inspectors by mapping their daily schedules. 

    The department also created a remote inspection process, which reduced the plan review and approval turnaround times.

    “I’m pleased to have one of the largest and most respected industry groups recognize the work Pima County has done to make the development process more efficient for everyone involved,” DeBonis said. “This is an honor for the County, my colleagues and me personally.” 

    Prior to his appointment as Deputy County Administrator in February 2017, DeBonis was the County Development Services Director where he spearheaded the department’s modernization.
