On Tuesday, the Village Board passed an ordinance adopting updated building and fire codes. The last time the Village’s building and fire codes were substantially updated was 2003. Building and Fire Department staff worked over the last several years reviewing proposed codes and amendments in an effort to modernize these codes and incorporate them into the Village Municipal Code. These updates will help ensure that buildings and their occupants are kept as safe as reasonable possible, while providing architects and engineers more modern design flexibility. The new codes go into effect on March 1, 2020.
