Fairmont Building Official Parsley Re-Elected to International Code Council Board
Patrick Parsley, the Building Official for Fairmont, Minn., has been re-elected as a Director on the International Code Council Board. He has served the city since 1989 and was founder of the Council’s Region III Chapter that supports building safety professionals in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
Through public/private sector collaboration, the Code Council provides support to government by developing codes that allow for safe and sustainable construction. As a result, government does not take on the high cost of developing its own codes and benefits from code uniformity that encourages local, affordable construction growth.
Parsley is a Minnesota Certified Building Official, a Certified Plans Examiner and a Certified Building Official. He was named “Minnesota Code Official of the Year” in 1998 and received the Herb Meyer Award from the 10,000 Lakes Chapter.
“Our Directors devote a lot time and energy to volunteer for the International Code Council Board,” said International Code Council CEO Richard P. Weiland. “They could not serve on the board without the support of the jurisdictions they work for. We thank the Board members and their employers for their dedication to pursuing the goal of building safety and fire prevention.”
Parsley holds an Industrial Technology Degree from Baker College. He was re-elected during the Council’s 2011 Annual Conference in November.
The International Code Council is a member-focused association dedicated to helping the building safety community and construction industry provide safe and sustainable construction through the development of codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process. Most U.S. communities and many global markets choose the International Codes.
