The Village of Mundelein Building Department is pleased to welcome Mark Cacchione to the newly created position of Fire Inspector.

Moving this position to the Building Department helps to facilitate better coordination between both departments on building inspections. Also, this reassignment provides the opportunity to cross-train inspectors in both departments.
