Dothan's Building Code

The city of Dothan is trying to get up-to-date with everyone else by having a stable building code.

The city has been operating under the same code since the mid-90s and officials say it's time for an upgrade.

Other professional entities don't support the city's current code.

Dothan's Development Authority is asking the city to adopt the new 2006 International Building Code, which involves residential and commercial properties.

There will be a series of public hearings held in March on the topic.
