Representing the Natick Fire Department were Captain Salvatore Arena and Consultant Maurice Paulette.
Mr. Ciccariello asked if Mr. Paulette
was requiring compliance with 13 or 13R.
advised that that plans had been submitted relative to 13R which was permitted under the statutes for this type of building.
explained that the whole purpose of the law as part of the Fire Safety Act was to streamline and have a more effective enforcement authority with a municipal hearing officer if someone decided to appeal.In his
experience on code enforcement after a violation was found during an inspection, the property owners and tenants in Natick
have been very cooperative.They (Mr. Melchiorri, Captain Arena
, Mr. Paulette) felt that there wasn't a problem at this point, but if there was a problem they would come back and say go ahead with the appointment of a hearing officer.
