Building Code Advisory Board
The Building Code Advisory Board has several functions. All appeals of written rulings or administrative decisions of the Chief Building Official or the Fire Chief are taken to this Board. The Board may also determine the suitability of alternate methods and materials, and may be asked to provide reasonable interpretations of the provisions of the adopted building and fire codes. However, the Board has no authority to grant deviations or exceptions to the City’s Building or Fire Codes, and does not have the authority to recommend a decrease in public safety or fire-resistive standards as set forth in the Code
