EMERGENCY CALLS FOR INSPECTORS/BUILDING OFFICIALS

Hi Everyone,
In Hartford, we have a unique situation where we are on call 24/7 for Fire, Health and Human Services, Housing Code Enforcement and HPD. We rotate these by weekly assignments to our inspectors. Many of the calls are non-urgent. Backed up toilets, non-urgent electrical issues, wet sheetrock etc. We have recently begun to question the folks that call in to see if there really is a need to have an inspector respond immediately or can it wait until the next day or even the following Monday.

ByLaws

Reading the proposed ByLaws revisions, I find there is currently no requirement for how and when Notice is given; for meetings or other date-specific events. Such Notice (other than Emergency), found in many ByLAws, would have a legally sufficient time for delivery noted.

It would be a welcome addition to provide for notice if that is possible to consider in this revision:

a) Electronically, where one or more email addresses are recognized in personal information supplied; OR
