Electricians and mechanical contractors are invited to apply for membership on the city of Tempe’s technical code advisory board of appeals, which has two vacancies for positions involving reviewing local building codes.
The advisory board meets to consider appeals of the city’s code and building regulations, specifically Chapter 8 matters, according to an announcement. It issues variances, approves the use of alternative building materials on a case-by-case basis and ensures compliance with safety, fire resistance and sanitation requirements.
The group is composed of nine individuals, each of whom serves for a three-year term. Members are appointed based on qualifications including both experience and training, and convene approximately every three months as needed.
In addition to electricians and mechanical contractors, the board consists of an architect; structural engineer; homebuilder or building contractor; electrical engineer; mechanical engineer; plumber; and fire department representative or consultant.
“These people help ensure the safety of Tempe's buildings for generations to come,” according to the city government's website.
Participants are not required to reside within city limits to serve on the board of appeals.
