The Plumbing Examination and Review Board works to establish minimum qualifications and conduct examinations for applicants desiring a license to install, repair or modify plumbing in both residential and commercial structures. Examinations are conducted at least once each quarter. 

The agenda issued for meetings will be posted in the front area of building inspections, Room 505, one week prior to the meeting.


The Board consists of six members - the Department of Operations and Engineering Director or designee, three city licensed master plumbers, one state licensed mechanical engineer, one city licensed mechanical contractor, and one consumer representative. These members are appointed by the Mayor and serve a five year term.


The board meets quarterly on the first Wednesday in the months of February, May, August and November. If the first Wednesday is on the 1st of the month, then the Board meets the second Wednesday. All meetings are at 8:30 am in the Small Assembly Room of the City County Building.
