URGENT MESSAGE FROM SHANDY HEIL, CFMOn behalf of the USVI DPNR Building Department, we would like to request another all-call to ICC membership for the ongoing EMAC mission. DPNR’s highest priority is plans examiners, but building and electrical inspectors are still needed during this phase (3/1/18-3/31/18). You can find the revised EMAC request attached, which will provide additional information about the request.  Notice the EMAC mission has been extended in USVI to the end of May, 2018.  For more information click HERE.

OPPOSE HB 4247 – RESTRICT EDUCATION & TRAINING MEETINGS ATTENDED BY STATE EMPLOYEES--HB 4247 would restrict state agencies from participating in safety training, public health and medical training.  Public health departments and well as building departments, work together through professional associations to hold training and educational sessions for their members.  Many state employees are required by law to maintain specific certifications by attending continuing education meetings related to their profession (like plumbing inspectors and they go to continuing ed sessions sponsored by non-profits such as the IL Plumbing Inspectors Association) yet HB 4247 would make the employee pay out of pocket to attend this training.  For a more complete overview click HERE
