Congratulations and a great big “Well Done!” to Doug Kuhlman and all those who participated in the creation of the Southwest Michigan Construction Code Essential Standards Library!
In addition to Doug’s coordination, administrative, and membership efforts, Mike Alwine got all the necessary books together and Bauckham Sparks’ attorney Roxanne Seeber authored the library’s interlocal agreement. Now, building officials in over 20 townships and municipalities enjoy 24 hour key card access to all the essential building code resources they need, both on the shelf and on line.
“This is a great example of what can happen when municipalities work together,” says attorney Seeber.
“The cost to each of our members is far lower than if they’d purchased the essential standards on their own,” continues Kuhlman, “and they all have around the clock access to whatever information they need. It’s a win for everyone.”
The library, located in the Mottville Township Hall building, serves municipalities in Cass, Van Buren, and St. Joseph counties.
For information about joining, please call Doug Kuhlman at (269) 651-3130. Or, for information about the back story, don’t hesitate to call either Doug or attorney Seeber at (269) 382-4500.
