Public Hearing:

Date: May 6, 2020

Time: 11:00 a.m.

Location: Phone Number: 877-873-8017, Access Code: 3595763

Reason for Proposed Temporary Action: Code Officials ensure property and life safety by performing necessary, vital, and essential services to the public in the form of building code compliance inspections on residential, commercial, healthcare, and governmental structures. On March 10, 2020, the Governor of North Carolina, by issuing Executive Order No. 116, declared a state of emergency to coordinate a response and enact protective measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. On March 12, 2020, the Governor of North Carolina and the NC Department of Health and Human Services recommend high risk persons stay at home, that schools implement plans for distance or e-learning, that employers and employees use teleworking technologies, and that mass gatherings should cancel, postpone, and modify these events or offer online streaming services. On March 14, 2020, the Governor of North Carolina issued Executive Order No. 117 that prohibited mass gatherings, closed schools, and urges social distancing. The NCCOQB has adopted emergency rules to assist current holders of probationary certificates that are good for a maximum of 3 years and may not be extended beyond that period pursuant to statute-NC Gen. Stat. 143-153.13(d). There are a number of licensees with probationary certificates that will be expiring in the near future, but they are unable to obtain their Standard Certificate because the training and testing centers are closed due to COVID-19. The NCCOQB has adopted an emergency rule to prevent the probationary certificates expiring without any type of recourse.
