Substandard structures and dangerous buildings fall within the jurisdiction of the Building and Standards Board. The board is comprised of community members who assemble periodically to deal with these types of issues. The board meets as needed. When meetings are called, they are posted at City Hall and through our online social media forums. These meetings are open to the public.
