I posted this in the Cyburbia forum as well, so forgive me for being
The City of Glenwood is considering implementing building inspections
as a way to preserve property values and combat deterioration of
buildings in older neighborhoods. Those of you working in cities that
have a building and inspections department (or contract for services)
could be a tremendous help if you would answer the following questions:
What codes do you use?
Do you contract for services or have your own inspector?
What projects, properties and structures are subject to inspections?
Does you city inspect only rental/commercial structures and new
Any other pertinent information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
for taking the time to assist a fellow Iowa municipality.
