Title
An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 111 of Title IX of the Ann Arbor City Code to Adopt the 2009 International Fire Code
Memorandum
The proposed ordinance amends Chapter 111 of Title IX of the Ann Arbor City Code to adopt the 2009 International Fire Code and make other changes related to the adoption of the 2009 International Fire Code. A copy of the 2009 International Fire Code is available for review in the office of the City Clerk. Approval of this ordinance is recommended.

The current ordinance adopts the 2003 IFC. It is necessary now to adopt the 2009 IFC, however, because the Michigan Building Code that Planning and Development Service is obligated to enforce makes reference to the 2009 IFC. This will ensure uniform enforcement by the Fire Department and Planning and Development Services.

The International Fire Code regulates conditions hazardous to life and property from the standpoint of fire and explosion and defines the scope of authority of the Fire Marshal. Section 9:101 of the Ann Arbor City Code currently marks and designates the “2003 International Fire Code” together with the provisions of Chapter 111 as the Fire Prevention Code of Ann Arbor. The Fire Service Unit is recommending your approval of the 2009 International Fire Code and related changes to Chapter 111, to be designated as the Fire Prevention Code of Ann Arbor.

A copy of the 2009 International Fire Code will be kept on file in the office of the City Clerk and made available to the public upon request through the offices of the City Clerk and Fire Service Unit - Bureau of Fire Prevention.
