The ordinance also specifies sections of the IFC that are amended to tailor the IFC to the City of Ann Arbor's circumstances. (Section 9:103).

Other than the provisions relating to the IFC and minor housekeeping changes, the ordinance amendment accomplishes the following:

* Expressly provides in several sections that a violation of the section is a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $500 and/or 90 days imprisonment.

* Adopts reference to the 2016 edition of the National Fire Protection Association 55; Compressed Gases and Cryogenic Fluids Code to allow better code enforcement against life threatening gases that have emerged within the City.
