Greensburg woman joins state advisory council
A Greensburg councilwoman has been appointed to an advisory council that makes recommendations to state officials and legislators concerning construction codes.
Kathleen McCormick was appointed by Gov. Tom Corbett.
“Most of the questions that I field from businesses and from residents deal with construction code,” McCormick said. “I feel honored, and I'm committed to doing a good job.”
She represents third-class cities on the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code Review and Advisory Council. Her appointment runs through June 30, according to the council's website.
State Sen. Kim Ward, a Hempfield Republican, nominated McCormick to fill an opening for an elected official to represent third-class cities.
The 19-member council is composed of elected municipal officials, engineers, architects and contractors.
The group makes recommendations related to changes in the state's Uniform Construction Code, as well as reviews possible revisions. McCormick said the council gathers information from industry officials and professionals about concerns or proposed changes to the rules.
McCormick was sworn in by District Judge James Albert in Greensburg.
