Code commission members sought



Vancouver is seeking individuals to fill two positions on the Building-Fire Code Commission.

Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. Feb. 10.

This volunteer board, made up of at least five members, makes recommendations to the Vancouver City Council regarding building and fire codes and proposed code changes. It also hears and resolves disputes concerning a building or fire official’s code interpretations and application to permits, investigates building code, fire, and construction-related problems, and recommends uniform construction and fire-prevention regulations. The board meets as needed. City residency is not a requirement.

Both vacancies are for six-year positions, expiring in 2018. The first position is a “public at large” representative. Applicants for the second position must represent the civil engineering field.
