On Monday, February 2, the Sedgwick
County Board of Code and Standards Advisory group will be reviewing all proposed
amendments regarding adoption of the 2012 International Residential Building
Code in addition to their regular meeting agenda. This advisory board
meeting is always open to the public. The meeting will be held at
1:00 PM at 730 N Main in the Executive Room.
In 2016, changes to floodplain boundaries in Sedgwick
County will be finalized.

The renewal time for building contractor licenses is approaching for years 2015
and 2016. Historically, all building contractors had to renew separately with
the City of Wichita and Sedgwick County, paying at both stops. Due to the
ongoing city/county merger, contractors will now only need to purchase a single
countywide license which will allow them to operate anywhere in Sedgwick County
and City of Wichita plus 10 smaller
cities within the county. Fees have been consolidated between city and
county and will now renew every OTHER year instead of annually. For those who
are Class A through D contractors plus cell tower and mobile home installers who
do business in the city and county, the combined license cost has been reduced
by 10% when compared to 2012. Roofing, siding, sign, swimming pool, and
wrecking contractors will see a small increase in license fees but will be able
to work in the whole jurisdiction mentioned above.
Though the official consolidation of the city of Wichita's
Office of Central Inspection and the Sedgwick County Department of Code
Enforcement began January 1, 2013, the majority of the consolidation will take
place throughout 2013 and into 2014. Physical offices, as well as this
website, will be "under construction" until this process is complete.
