Ignorance isn’t bliss

Mark Kittle, in his former role as inspector for the building department of the town of Basalt, permitted the erection of a house measuring more than 6,000 square feet on the ridge of Basalt.

Mark admitted to his successor, Jim Wilson, that the imposition of this huge structure on the town’s landscape was made possible through his “ignorance” of the 5,000-square-foot building limit in the town of Basalt.

Now Mark Kittle is running for Basalt Town Council. If this is the manner in which he conducted his business as our town’s building inspector, what can we expect of him as a councilman?
