Individuals needed to fill remaining positions on Construction Appeal and Advisory Board – Voice Of Muscatine


The City of Muscatine is looking to fill remaining positions for the Construction Appeal and Advisory Board that was established by the Muscatine City Council in November 2023. Qualified volunteers should have experience and training pertaining to the building construction trades. Residents of Muscatine and Muscatine County are eligible to apply.

The new board will serve a vital advisory role to the City Council in how building codes are interpreted, implemented, and written by the City of Muscatine. The board will also serve as the official appeals board to building code interpretations and enforcement decisions, and help promote public understanding of the building code and its value. The City of Muscatine building codes are established in Title 8 (Building Regulations) of the Code of Muscatine.

Individuals who have experience in the construction industry (including architects, engineers, builders, contractors, or code enforcement professionals), have a strong understanding of building code and its application, and who are passionate about making a positive impact on their community are encouraged to submit their application.

Board members will serve a five-year term, and attend and actively participate in regularly scheduled monthly meetings. No individual serves more than two consecutive terms.
