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

Mark will also act as the liaison to the Fire Department.

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.
