    Drowning is the second leading cause of death in children under 14 years of age. It is the leading cause of death for children under the age of four and most drowning occurs in home swimming pools.

    The popular "inflatable pool" is a swimming pool according to the NY State Building Code which the Village of Fayetteville must enforce. This means that a pool permit and inspection(s) are needed - along with fencing - for all pools capable of holding 24 inches of water or more.
    Accidents can be prevented. Please contact us or encourage your friends and neighbors to call if a pool is to be installed. Filing for a Pool permit may cause a little extra time and work. However, it insures your family, friends and neighbors' safety. Please call us at the Building Office if you have any questions at 315-637-9864 or send an email to .

    New York State Code Updates:


  • Notice of Adoption of Emergency Rule

    Carbon Monoxide Alarms – Commercial Buildings


    New Uniform Code Provisions

    Legislation adopted in late 2014(Chapter 541 of the Laws of 2014) amended the Executive Law to require that the State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code (the Uniform Code) include standards for the installation of carbon monoxide detecting devices in every commercial building and restaurant that has appliances, devices or systems that may emit carbon monoxide or an attached garage.

    The State Fire Prevention and Building Code Council (the Code Council) and the Department of State have adopted a rule that amends the Uniform Code by adding provisions requiring the installation of carbon monoxide detection (carbon monoxide alarms or carbon monoxide detection systems) in all new and existing commercial buildings(including, but not limited to, all buildings that contain one or more restaurants).  The new Uniform Code provisions are in section 1228.4 of Part 1228 of Title 19 of the New York Codes, Rules, and Regulations (the NYCRR).

    Effective Date:  June 27, 2015

    The rule was filed as an emergency rule on June 26, 2015, and the rule (and new Section 1228.4) became effective on June 27, 2015.    The rule text in is available by clicking here.
