Duties & Responsibilities
The Building Code Advisory Committee consists of three full members and up to two alternate members appointed to three-year terms by the Board of Selectmen.
The Committee advises the Building Inspector on matters pertaining to building construction, safety, codes, and technological changes.
The Committee also acts in the capacity of a Building Codes appeals committee. The members' combined expertise in construction is a valuable asset to the Zoning Board of Adjustment in matters of appeals regarding the Building Inspector's decisions or interpretations of code requirements or allowing the use of new technologies.
In addition, the Committee researches and proposes to the Selectboard amendments to the Building Code Adopting Ordinance.
