The Uniform Construction Code, contained in 34 Pa. Code, Chapters 401 to 405, as amended from time to time, is hereby adopted and incorporated herein by reference as the municipal building code of this municipality.
Administration and enforcement of the code within this municipality shall be undertaken in any of the following ways as determined by the governing body of this municipality from time to time by resolution:
In every instance where the Construction Code relies on provisions of other codes, such as the ICC Electrical Code, International Fuel Gas Code, International Mechanical Code, International Plumbing Code, International Private Sewage Disposal Code, International Property Maintenance Code, International Fire Code, or International Energy Conservation Code, the administrative provisions of those codes are not adopted by reference.

Section 103.3, Deputies, is amended to reflect that only the Township Supervisors have the authority to appoint a deputy building official.
A Board of Appeals shall be established by resolution of the governing body of this municipality in conformity with the requirements of the relevant provisions of the code, as amended from time to time, and for the purposes set forth therein. If at any time enforcement and administration is undertaken jointly with one or more other municipalities, said Board of Appeals shall be established by joint action of the participating municipalities.
