Board Bill Number 184 | Session 2022-2023

Amending the Lead Poisoning Law

Summary

This ordinance amends the Lead Poisoning Control Law for the City of St. Louis by requiring certain building permits issue only following an inspection of lead hazards and certification that hazards will be addressed by qualified contractors and workers. These requirements will ensure hazardous lead conditions are effectively abated by contractors observing high standards for the safety of occupants and tenants, workers, and the surrounding community. Under current law, certain lead abatement projects require prior notice to the state. This Ordinance enacts penalties against lead abatement contractors who fail to comply with notification requirements under Missouri State law, and other notification requirements as set out in this ordinance. Contractors failing to provide initial notice under State law and this City Ordinance will be subject to a stop work order, suspension of City work permits on the instant work site, and a fine. Work may recommence upon payment of fine, compliance with notice requirements and the Building Commissioner's satisfaction the contractor has complied with other permitting conditions. Lead abatement contractors who persistently fail to provide notification under State and City law shall forfeit their privilege of conducting lead abatement projects in the City of St. Louis. The Building Commissioner and City of St. Louis Lead Inspection and Hazard Control Division shall receive complaints regarding violations of this ordinance and accordingly conduct investigations, including through periodic inspections of lead abatement projects to determine on-site compliance with federal, state, and local regulations, permits, and project notifications submitted to the building Commissioner.
