The Building Division is responsible for the safe building environment and structural integrity of buildings in the City. It strives to provide this integrity through plan review of construction projects, for compliance with the City's codes and ordinances. This division also provides on site inspections to help insure that the actual construction is safe and secure.
The Building Division's objectives are to benefit the general public through the establishment of minimum safety and construction standards, providing education to the public concerning the necessity of these standards, encouragement of the public to meet these standards through voluntary compliance, and to provide enforcement of City adopted building codes and zoning ordinances.
Winter weather is upon us and the Mid Iowa Construction Code Committee (MICCC) has a
to regulate the placement of concrete during cold weather by providing minimum standards. Please review the policy before preparing the site and calling for an inspection.
