Building Code Update
This spring the Village will be updating its construction and property maintenance codes and amendments (see list below). The Village's last comprehensive review and adoption of the 2006 International Code Council codes and related amendments was in December 2006. Maintenance of these regulations ensures the Village is up-to-date with current construction methods and public safety practices, and that these regulations are consistent with related internal and external laws and regulations. A copy of the proposed code books (2015 ICC and 2014 NEC) are available at Village Hall, and at the ICC publicAccess webpage found [here]. Links to the existing codes, working drafts, and proposed ordinances are provided below. The Village anticipates making the new building codes and amendments active by early summer 2018 (best if visited using desktop web browser).
