City Seeks Feedback on Proposed Amendments to Building Code

The City of Wheaton is in the process of updating building codes to the 2018 editions of the International Code Council, Inc (ICC) and will be adopting local amendments of those building codes appropriate for the City of Wheaton. Adoption of the most recent ICC building code editions with local amendments promotes the health, safety, and welfare of our community.

The City is looking for feedback from the community by Friday, Dec. 13. All comments should be emailed to Fire Chief Bill Schultz at bschultz@wheaton.il.us or delivered to Wheaton City Hall: 303 W. Wesley Street, Wheaton, IL 60187.

Did You Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries?

When you changed your clocks back an hour for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, did you also change batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors? The Wheaton Fire Department recommends you change the batteries about every six months to ensure the detectors will work correctly. Using Daylight Saving Time as a reminder of when you last changed batteries is an easy way to remember when it’s time to replace them.
