16B.73 State building code in municipalities under 2,500; local option.
The governing body of a municipality whose population is less than 2,500 may provide that the state building code, except the requirements for handicapped persons and the requirements for elevator safety, will not apply within the jurisdiction of the municipality, if the municipality is located in whole or in part within a county exempted from its application under section 16B.72. If more than one municipality has jurisdiction over an area, the state building code continues to apply unless all municipalities having jurisdiction over the area have provided that the state building code, except the requirements for handicapped persons and the requirements for elevator safety, does not apply within their respective jurisdictions. Nothing in this section precludes a municipality or town from adopting and enforcing by ordinance or other legal means the state building code within its jurisdiction.
