Hello Basalt Building Community,
Happy Spring, we hope you all are doing well! Here’s an important heads-up.
Due to the volume of office work required to support the amount of building going on in Basalt these days we are having to claim/designate two weekdays as “no field work days”.
Starting in May the Basalt Building Department will no longer be doing inspections or site visits on Mondays and Fridays.Roaring Fork Fire Rescue and Town of Basalt Winter 2020/2021 Guidelines for Temporary Outdoor Enclosures or Structures (TOSs)

B.E.S.T. TESTING IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE IN BASALT.
Demonstrate your code proficiency/competence! The B.E.S.T. program (Board of Examiners for Standardized Testing) was established in 1994. It is an intergovernmental reciprocity agreement started by local jurisdictions in the Roaring Fork Valley, which has since expanded to include the I-70 corridor, west to Rifle. The program eliminates the need for a contractor license candidate to test in each jurisdiction to qualify for a license. A B.E.S.T. cardholder need only present the card to demonstrate code comprehension. It is not a license.
You may order code books through the building department. The Town purchases your order at ICC member rates and passes the savings on to you. It takes about a week for delivery. Payment (including postage) is due when the order is picked up. Call 970-927-4702 to place an order. Browse the ICC bookstore at http://shop.iccsafe.org/.
To view codes online, the International Code Council has posted several editions of all the codes they publish at https://codes.iccsafe.org/public/collections/I-Codes. The site is designed to allow you to view the International Codes for free. You are limited in your abilities to search and print, however all sections of the codes are available for you.
