The city of Grantville is updating its code of ordinances.

At the city council's Monday work session, City Manager Al Grieshaber said the city will add international property maintenance code, standard housing code and standard swimming pool code to the city's code of ordinances.

These ordinances will receive their second reading at the Grantville council meeting on June 28.

According to Grieshaber, these codes have to be adopted locally for Safebuild, the city's building official, to enforce them.

"All of these codes are enforced by Safebuild and our code enforcement officer," he said.

A rewrite to the city's animal ordinances by Grantville's animal control officer is also up for consideration and adoption at the council's June 28 meeting, Grieshaber said.

Councilmember Ruby Hines said a reference to Safebuild, by name, should be included in the update to the ordinances.

The city's ordinances already mention Safebuild, just not by name, said Grieshaber, since the organization is the city's building official.

"They are in fact listed by title, not by name, because we could change building officials," he said.
