2016 Village of Plainfield Building Code1 MEMORANDUM To: Mayor Collins and the Board of Trustees From: Ken Goska, Building Official CC: Brian Murphy, Village Administrator Date: January 4, 2016 Re: Recapitulation of Building Codes Background Findings The Village Board previously approved changes to the Recapitulation of Building Codes in the fall of 2010. The Building Department staff revised the building code document to make it more user-friendly. Most of the changes are to clarify, reorganize and create stringent but feasible codes. Updating to the 2015 International Codes will address new materials and techniques to ensure quality building practices throughout the Village’s residential and commercial projects. The clarifications address normal practices by most contractors in the Village and will be easier for all to understand. Included in the attached exhibits are the changes to the Recapitulation of Building Codes and a survey. This permit fee survey was conducted in November of 2015. It represents permits fees from neighboring communities, the Village’s current permit fee structure and a proposed fee structure. Policy Considerations The Building Department has the duty to enforce regulations concerning construction, alterations, movement, enlargement, replacement, repair and demolition within the Village limits. Updating the code ensures the life, health and safety of our residents and the public. The Board has the right to accept or reject any or all proposals. Financial Considerations A new fee structure will allow the department to continue to provide a high level of service to residents and businesses while becoming more fiscally self-supporting. Recommendation It is our recommendation that the Village Board direct the President to approve the Recapitulation of Building Codes including the 2015 International Codes and the proposed permit fees as outlined in the attached exhibits. 2 3 ORDINANCE NO. ____ AN ORDINANCE COMPREHENSIVELY REVISING THE VILLAGE OF PLAINFIELD BUILIDNG CODE ORDINANCE NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE PRESIDENT AND THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE VILLAGE OF PLAINFIELD, AS FOLLOWS: I.
