Amendment to 2006 Residential Code

Amendment to 2006 Residential Code

Permits and Inspections Director Dan DiVito brought this request, during the March 11th Board of County Commissioner's meeting, to adopt an amendment to the ordinance adopting the 2006 International Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings, First Printing, with Local Amendments for Washington County, Maryland, to the Board. DiVito recommended adopt the Ordinance to Amend the Ordinance adopted by the Board of County Commissioners of Washington County, Maryland on December 17, 2007, effective March 1, 2008 as presented by staff.
A public hearing was held on February 26, 2008 for the purpose of considering the adoption of an Ordinance to amend the Ordinance entitled "An Ordinance to Repeal the 2003 International Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings, Fourth Printing, with Local Amendments for Washington County, and to Enact the 2006 International Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings, First Printing, with Local Amendments for Washington County, Maryland" adopted by the Board of County Commissioners on December 17, 2007.
Subsequent to the adoption of the 2006 International Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings, First Printing, with Local Amendments for Washington County, it was discovered that new language had been inadvertently omitted in Section R403.1, General, of the local amendments, which read: "All structures requiring continuous footings shall be reinforced with a minimum of two #4 reinforcing bars, or as specified by a design professional". The measure was approved by unanimous vote.
