The goal of the Building Division is to provide the best building code enforcement services possible, to assist applicants with the building construction process and provide them the opportunity to complete their building goals and ideas within this community. We will accomplish this by providing the required technical and customer service training of our inspection staff.

2003 MICHIGAN UNIFORM

ENERGY CODE RULES NOW IN EFFECT

October 27, 2008

In 2002, the Department of Labor & Economic Growth established a committee to review and update Michigan's Uniform Energy Code. After review and promulgation of the code, the Ingham County Circuit Court issued an injunction to halt the February 28, 2005, effective date of the rules. Therefore, the rules have been pending litigation since that time. On October 24, 2008, this matter was before the court with a decision following to dismiss the complaint and dissolve the injunction; thereby making the rules effective immediately.

 

Therefore, all new permit applications from October 27, 2008 must apply with the 2003 Michigan Uniform Energy Code (MUEC).
