If you are a Kentucky HVAC Contractor and have not received your copy of "Kentucky State HVAC, Law, Regulations & Code References" for 2011; please contact the Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction, Division of HVAC.
The primary purpose of the Division of Building Inspection is to ensure safe minimum levels of construction through enforcement of the uniform Kentucky Building Code. This is closely followed by the enforcement of the Zoning Ordinance, which provides for the safe orderly growth of our community.
Our mission is to attain compliance with City codes regarding land use regulations and the maintenance of structures and premises through education, cooperation, enforcement and abatement to achieve a cleaner, healthier and safer Corbin.
The Department of Code Enforcement deals with properties and property owners on a day-to-day basis to ensure that minimum maintenance and repair standards for all existing structures throughout the community are met. It ensures that residential and commercial structures are maintained to the minimum standards set forth in the International Property Maintenance Code.
Code Enforcement provides information and insures compliance with other laws regarding private property, such as:
