Gilbert Can Govern Itself

Dear Council Members,

Weask for you to vote YES to return the International ICC codes back to suggestions and recommendations. This action would take effect 3-6 months after a vote in which
time we can review, revise and approve a Life-Safety set of Gilbert Governing Codes.

Whereas: The current ICC building codes have a direct impact on the citizens of Gilbert yet were not written by anyone from or familiar with Gilbert; and

Whereas: Those in the building industry have been rebuffed by plan reviewers and building inspectors in working together in a common sense fashion in the best interests of the home owners and citizens of Gilbert, due to the existing 2006 ICC codes; and

Whereas: Our earnest requests have been met with insults and retaliatory measures from Town Staff, having the negative effect on tradesmen and citizens alike, causing them to resort to silent compliance to illogical and nonsensical requirements; and

Whereas: The current town management has been unable and unwilling to work with the citizens or those in the trades to put together a simple set of comprehensible life/safety codes while these current 2006 ICC codes are still in place as law as passed by previous councils; and

Whereas: The current ICC building codes were passed into law by previous and current council members without having been read or understood. We ask you to rescind them as mandated law on the citizens of Gilbert and return them to their rightful place in the free market economy as suggestions and recommendations.
