Attention builders, construction experts: City of Tacoma wants you to serve

Staff writerJune 23, 2014 

The City of Tacoma needs two persons to fill vacancies on the Board of Building Appeals.

Applicants will have expertise in design or construction – related to building, fire, mechanical, plumbing and/or the energy code.

“Those with experience in sustainable building construction are also encouraged to apply,” said a release Monday.

The Board of Building Appeals is a “quasi-judicial board consisting of seven members who are recommended by the Infrastructure, Planning and Sustainability Committee and appointed by the City Council,” the release said.

Members review and offer recommendation to the council on new additions, amendments and proposed changes to various city codes related to building. The committee also hears appeals, holds hearings and reviews certain decisions made by officials.
