Nebraska Revised Statute 23-172

Chapter 23 Section 172

23-172.

Standard codes; adoption; copy; area where applicable.

(1) The county board may adopt by resolution, which shall have the force and effect of law, the conditions, provisions, limitations, and terms of a building or construction code, a plumbing code, an electrical code, a fire prevention code, or any other code relating to building or relating to the erection, construction, reconstruction, alteration, repair, conversion, maintenance, placing, or using of any building, structure, automobile trailer, house trailer, or cabin trailer. For this purpose, the county board may adopt any standard code which contains rules or regulations printed as a code in book or pamphlet form by reference to such code or portions thereof without setting forth in the resolution the conditions, provisions, limitations, or terms of such code. When such code or any such standard code or portion thereof is incorporated by reference into such resolution, it shall have the same force and effect as though it had been written in its entirety in such resolution without further or additional publication.

(2) Not less than one copy of such code or such standard code or portion thereof shall be kept for use and examination by the public in the office of the clerk of such county prior to the adoption thereof and as long as such standard code is in effect in such county.

(3) Any building or construction code implemented under this section shall be adopted and enforced as provided in section 71-6406.

(4) If there is no county resolution adopting a plumbing code in effect for such county, the 2009 Uniform Plumbing Code accredited by the American National Standards Institute shall apply to all buildings.

(5) Any code adopted and approved by the county board, as provided in this section, or if there is no county resolution adopting a plumbing code in effect for such county, the 2009 Uniform Plumbing Code accredited by the American National Standards Institute, and the building permit requirements or occupancy permit requirements imposed by such code or by sections 23-114.04 and 23-114.05, shall apply to all of the county except within the limits of any incorporated city or village and except within an unincorporated area where a city or village has been granted zoning jurisdiction and is exercising such jurisdiction.

(6) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as creating an obligation for the county to inspect plumbing work done within its jurisdiction to determine compliance with the plumbing code.
