NOTE: On 5/1/2006, the 2003 International Property Maintenance Code was incorporated by reference under the Chapter 150 of the city of Piqua Code of Ordinances. However, currently this 40 page document is NOT available from any of the city’s on-line resources, including their on-line version of the codified ordinances maintained and hosted for them by American Legal Publishing.

Please use the link above to download a copy and familiarize yourself with the code.  Despite the city of Piqua’s lack of transparency in making this fact known, as shown in the following excerpt, it is definitely incorporated by reference into the city’s code, and is routinely used as the basis for virtually all of the property maintenance citations issued by the city’s code enforcement department.

§ 150.105 CODE ADOPTED. (A) (1) Pursuant to the provisions of Ohio Revised Code (R.C.) § 731.231, the 2003 International Property Maintenance Code, promulgated by the International Code Council, which provides standards intended to ensure public health, safety and welfare insofar as they are affected by the continued occupancy and maintenance of a structure or premises, is hereby adopted and shall be enforced as the city Property Maintenance Code, except for those portions thereof that have been or may hereafter be deleted or amended.
