NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The Adams County Board of Supervisors is seeking public input about the possibility of new building code requirements outside the Natchez city limits.

Board attorney Scott Slover said the state legislature passed a bill this year mandating that all counties enact one of three nationwide building code standards.

The city of Natchez already has a code in place, but Adams County outside the city limits does not have similar building regulations.

To gauge the public’s reaction to the proposed codes, the supervisors have tentatively scheduled a public hearing for June 3. They’ve also said they want to hear the public’s opinion before then.

Board President Darryl Grennell tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/Rqdjtv ) his gut feeling on the matter is residents outside the city limits won’t likely support implementing building codes.
