Agenda Item Summary:
The State has adopted the 2015 Uniform Plumbing Code, and this ordinance amendment does the same for the City. The ordinance amendment also eliminates three trade licenses that are duplicative of state licenses, and if amended the City would only license plumbing contractors only. A public meeting was held on May 31 to which all licensed plumbers were invited, and the Building Board of Appeals approved the ordinance at its June 14, 2016 meeting.

Funding Source & Fiscal Impact (if applicable):

Funding Cost Center
This ordinance would result in reduced revenue because certain plumbing licenses are being eliminated. In 2016 so far, the City has collected $430 for 41 plumbing apprentice licenses, $1,800 for 72 plumbing journeyman licenses, and $0 for water softener contractor licenses. In 2015, the City collected $1,035 for the licenses that would be eliminated in Ordinance 6104.
