Montour High School keeps occupancy permit

Students are set to resume classes Monday at the recently renovated Montour High School in Robinson.
Township inspectors reinstated and extended the building's temporary occupancy permit through the coming school year, after having revoked the permit for fire code issues, district officials said tonight.
Plans Examiners Inc., the township's code agency, said in June it would not grant permanent occupancy until the district completed fire alarm and sprinkler tests and upgraded an emergency access road, as required by the 2006 International Fire Code.
Lawyers got involved, and it turned out Robinson never had adopted the code and therefore could not legally enforce it, Superintendent Donald Boyer said.
He said the fire systems have passed inspections, and the secondary access is not needed.
