CODE ENFORCEMENT
AG orders Clarksburg to stop enforcing building codes following complaint by Fire Commission

CLARKSBURG, W.Va.


The West Virginia Attorney General's Office has ordered Clarksburg to stop enforcing its building codes following a complaint by the state Fire Commission.

The Exponent Telegram reports that the complaint says the city's building codes are unlawful. It also says the city's code enforcement officers are uncertified. The complaint consolidates seven formal complaints that the commission received.

The newspaper says Assistant Attorney General Stephen R. Connolly told the city in a letter that it must stop all building code enforcement until it adopts a current version of the state building code, or until the complaints' outcome.

City Manager Martin Howe declined to comment, saying he hadn't received a copy of the letter yet.
