Consideration of an Ordinance Amending Chapter 7 Buildings and Building Regulations
The latest edition of the International Building Code family has been released for adoption. This includes the 2018 International Building Code, 2018 International Existing Building Code, 2018 International Residential Code, 2018 International Plumbing Code, 2018 International Mechanical Code, 2018 International Property Maintenance Code, 2018 International Fuel Gas Code, 2018 International Fire Code, and the most recent National Electrical Code. The new codes are proposed to be adopted with minor added amendments as described on the attachment. In addition to the specific added amendments, contractors should be aware that additional updates/changes within the 2018 code family are more clear and user friendly than the 2015 edition. It is the contractor’s responsibility to stay educated on the latest editions that are adopted in each community. Staff is available to answer any questions that contractors may have regarding these changes.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve on second reading an amendment to Chapter 7 of the City of Green River Code of Ordinances pertaining to adoption of the 2018 I-Codes.
