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.

Friendly Reminder to Please Register for CBOA Meetings

Hi All,

Significant Changes to 2018 SBC

Town ZEO's who answer to the BO

Our planner is inquiring as to any Town's which the Zoning Enforcement Officer answers directly to the Building Official. If anyone is aware of a Municipality in which this is the case, would you please let me know? Thanks.

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
