Code Officials must also complete training from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, passing six National Incident Management System courses and exams. Lastly, must be currently employed in the field of code enforcement and have a minimum of seven years of active employment in the field of code enforcement and/or regulation of health or safety.

“I look forward to continuing to learn and grow as a code official by continuing to acquire more knowledge of codes, the latest best practices and techniques for enforcement, and learning what ordinances and methods have or have not worked in other municipalities to help eliminate blight, increasing the quality of life, and property values.” said Singh.

“Mr. Singh is an invaluable part of the new leadership team in Steelton” said Doug Brown, Borough Manager. Brown added, “We set out almost two years ago to chart a new path for the Steelton Borough Codes Office centered on integrity, knowledge, and professionalism.
