By Unanimous Vote Commissioners Delay Residential Sprinkler Requirement by 6-Months

County Administration Building, January 18, 2011— The county commissioners voted unanimously this evening to  put a moratorium on a regulation requiring the installation of residential sprinklers in all new single family dwellings.  The date was extended to July 1, 2011, and Commissioner Hodge remarked that he is going to introduce an alternative to the mandate.  After the vote was recorded, Commissioner More remarked:  “One thing that was very clear to me during that Jan 4th public hearing, that in addition to strong feelings on both sides of the issue, there seems to be a great deal of conflicting information.  I personally would the opportunity to look into the facts and those options more thoroughly so I support delaying implementation of the ordinance.”

  1. I would like to thank all five Commissiners for their vote to put a moratorium on sprinklers. I would ask that you take this time to think about repealing sprinklers all together. Once again thank you, this is a step in the right direction.
