Demonstration by the municipality that all building inspection program permits and services will be available, including any service agreements for carrying out building program services;


Review of all elements of the assumption plan submitted by the municipality;


Demonstration by the municipality of the ability to provide building inspection program services for at least two years; and


Review of proposed levels of service, including the municipality’s ability to maintain or improve upon existing service levels.


Upon completion of a review under subsection (2) of this section, the director shall issue a final agency order approving or disapproving the application. [2001 c.573 §2]
