PUBLIC HEARING – ADOPTION OF BUILDING CODES

Mayor Trevino opened the Public Hearing on the adoption of the new building codes at 7:13 p.m.  Mayor Trevino stated that in order to be in compliance with the Washington State Revised Code of Washington, the City must adopt these building codes.  He also stated that these codes are usually adopted by the state much earlier in the year, but because of the pandemic, the state has extended their adoption date to February of 2021.  If adopted now, the Ordinance would not go into effect until February of 2021. 

Mayor Trevino asked the clerk if comments had been received at City Hall.  The Clerk said that no comments were received.  He then asked Council if they had any questions.   Councilman Isiordia asked if the City Council would lose its authority, by adopting the codes.  It was explained that this was an amendment to the ordinance and the City needed to adopt these building codes in order to be compliant with the State Building Codes, RCW 19.27.074. Mayor explained that by adopting the following codes we were establishing rules and regulations for construction, alteration, removal, demolition, equipment, use and occupancy, location and maintenance of buildings and structures, including permits and penalties as referenced in RCW 19.27.074.  Mayor Trevino asked if anyone else had any comments or questions, hearing none, he then closed the meeting at 7:21 p.m.
