Board Responsibilities    

The Building Trades and Fire Code Board of Appeals (“BTFCBA”) consists of seven voting members appointed by City Council with each of the following qualifications: one building contractor, one licensed master electrician, one representative of the local electrical service provider, one licensed master plumber, one representative of the local gas service provider, one licensed heating and air conditioning contractor, and one person who, by experience, has working knowledge of the aforementioned trades. Four alternates may also be appointed by the City Council provided that each alternate must meet any of the aforementioned qualifications. The appointed members of the BTFCBA will work closely with the City’s Chief Building Inspector, the City’s Engineer and the City’s Fire Marshal who serve as ex officio members of the Board without voting privileges. Administrative support is provided to the BTFCBA by the City’s Community Services Department.

The BTFCBA hears appeals and reviews testimony presented by persons either interested, affected or aggrieved by decisions of the City’s Chief Building Inspector or Fire Marshal. The BTFCBA also serves in an advisory capacity to the City Council by recommending ordinance amendments as from time to time may be necessary and proper in light of the development of new materials, methods, or techniques.

Level of Authority: Recommendations for ordinance amendments are forwarded to the City Council for consideration. Unless appealed to the City Council, the BTFCBA is the final authority on all matters for which it is responsible. 

Term Length:  Four year terms.
