The Des Moines City Council recently approved building inspectors Jay Mattas and Jeffrey Van Maanen, to travel to Clark County, Nev., from March 9-15, to attend the EduCODE 2014 conference. The conference promises to provide a level of education unavailable locally by assembling national experts in the building codes who will lead classes on the latest codes. The classes and training are said to feature deep discussion of code issues, critical to building inspections and maintaining code compliant, safe and structurally sound projects. The conference will also be an opportunity to network with building professionals who are enforcing current codes and to meet with building officials and inspectors from metropolitan areas all over the country. The total cost for both to go is $3,912.44, paid for by local tax dollars. CV
