For years, Cranberry’s municipal code has included some basic maintenance provisions in its, but their scope is very limited. At its November 2 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors agreed to authorize advertising the 107-page International Property Maintenance Code, with a few edits, for possible adoption on December 7. The IPMC is among the products developed by the American-based International Code Council. It covers a broad range of home and commercial site maintenance issues and suggests requirements that municipalities can adopt to maintain a at least a minimum level of safety and sanitation for both the occupants of a building and the general public. Those requirements apply to a building’s structural and weather resistance, safety, and sanitation for both primary and accessory structures. Enactment of the Code would give Cranberry authority to enforce its provisions and require owners to remedy hazardous situations on their property.
