Just got here, let me tell you how...
I am a city marshal in a type A general law city in Texas. I have been doing the work of the code enforcement officer as well. Today I was called in and I am now the bldg/code official because the water clerk no longer wishes to issue building permits and we have adopted the 2018 ICC. Our city is currently at just over 3000 but we just opened 5 new subdivisions this month and our property sales along the I35 corridor are booming. What kind of a hornets nest have I stepped into?

Ok ... here goes ...

Registered architect for around 10 years, through the experience route (no college). ICC certified "building plans examiner".

Currently performing self-certification reviews for City of Phoenix and a few other municipalities. Self-cert work is so huge right now I don't have time for architectural work in the office.
