Brenda Leota – Building Permit Technician

As a Building Permit Technician, Brenda processes applications for building permits as well as several other services. This can be a daunting task these days, given the rapid growth occurring in Syracuse. Brenda has been a dedicated employee of the City for over 20 years. She has held several positions throughout the years, including a crossing guard and a clerk in the court. 

She always does what it takes to get the job done. As an example, last summer Clearfield City called to request assistance with building permits because they recently lost a building inspector. They asked our City to help out until they filled the position. We gladly helped our neighboring City, and Brenda was critical in helping coordinate the inspections, taking on the task for two Cities! She worked extra hours to ensure our own applications didn’t get behind too. In September, Brenda was awarded the Employee of the Month award for her efforts. We are grateful for all she does for our City!
