The Lebanon City Council has adopted the first reading of an ordinance that will require inspections for new residential construction.
 
The council took the action at its regular meeting held Monday night.
 
The new ordinance includes a section of the International Building Code, which requires inspection of new residential construction and modification to existing structures. The ordinance is set for a second reading and adoption at a future council meeting.
 
Fire Chief Sam Schneider said he was happy to see the new law.
 
“I fought more structure fires in one year in our city than I did in my whole seven years in Kansas City in communities twice our size. Building inspections make a difference in the safety of a home. I applaud your efforts.”
