The Miamisburg Civic Center is in violation of the Ohio Building Code in several areas, according to a consultant’s report.

The 42,000 square foot building at 10 N. First St. was completed in 1974, and serves as the city’s main government facility.

Among the violations, the civic center lacks proper fire suppression, does not comply with the American with Disabilities Act and fails to meet current energy codes, according to the report, which was completed last year.

“The civic center does not meet code, and is in violation of the area limits by the Ohio Building Code,” according to the report by dps architects.

The civic center houses city administration and staff, municipal court, the police department and a detached fire station.

The report’s findings are part of an analysis of city facilities completed by the company in August. The feasibility study also included the city’s annex building, the community center, the Carnegie Center, the youth center and the Community Park Learning Center.
