MABCD Status of Operations
The most recent meeting of our Codes and Standards Committee featured a status report on the operation of MABCD. There was discussion of several recent concerns expressed by several members about the timing of service delivery by staff – citing too busy to look up information requested, or citing everyone being so busy work flow is getting slowed down and response times extended. Such being made known to the Committee it was felt that candid discussion was needed to identify any problems that might be developing. Discussion of solution options for consideration so that any actions that need to take place will take place immediately to bring service delivery back into balance. As always, MABCD management is most willing to address concerns and we continue to look forward to a good working relationship. To gather more timely and accurate information, consideration of conducting a quarter survey of members who have interaction with MABCD is being considered as a benefit to all parties involved.
Expansion of the Plumbing Board
With Wichita City Council and Sedgwick County Commissioner approval of a Resolution to expand the Plumbing Board by two members, the term of service of those on the current Board sunsets. Steps are being taken to solicit names of qualified tradesmen and others to serve on the expanded Board. Anyone interested in being considered for service in this regard is encouraged to contact MABCD to find out details, or Wess Galyon with the Wichita Area Builders Association.
