ICC Board Denies IECC Voter Eligibility Challenge
The International Code Council’s Board of Directors has denied three appeals challenging the eligibility of voters at the 2012 IECC Final Action Hearings held in October 2010 in Charlotte. The Board’s decision affirmed the recommendation of the Appeals Board issued after its hearing on March 31. The appellants had alleged violations had occurred at the hearings regarding ICC bylaws governing voter qualifications and ICC policies governing acceptable funding for code hearing travel. The Board of Directors referenced the findings of the Appeals Board regarding the lack of a material violation of policies and procedures. The Board also referred to the work of the Code Development Review Ad Hoc Committee as providing a foundation for discussing revisions to existing policies and procedures governing voter eligibility.
