On April 3, 2012 the Oklahoma City Council adopted the 2009 IRC as amended by the City. The effective date of the new code will be May 3, 2012. The City will host a meeting to present the changes in the mechanical portions of the code at 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 25 at OSU-OKC, 800 N. Portland, Admin Building, Student Center, 3rd Floor Conference Rooms 1 & 2.

The City's Chief Mechanical Inspector will present the changes and briefly explain how enforcement of the mechanical code requirements will be implemented. After the presentation, Mr. King will host a question and answer session.

Please pass the word regarding the meeting. Keep in mind that any mechanical work permitted on or before May 2, 2012 will be inspected to the previous code and not to the newly adopted code.
