Analysis

This ordinance amends city building code provisions and allows testing facilities to temporarily install experimental boilers for testing their efficiencies, and adds several new American Society of Power Engineers (ASOPE) license classifications which are used to determine an applicant’s fitness for a particular class of operating permit related to boilers.  It also creates a set of inspection procedures for liquefied petroleum gas systems and establishes a fee for failure to comply with a related order.
