After a lot of work and meetings with Placer County, Truckee Fire, and the Propane Task Force, we were able to have the County revise and update the old 1983 code with this new ordinance.  This Placer LPG Ordinance is much clearer and easier to understand.  We are very happy that among many other improvements, it clarifies that Truckee Fire has jurisdiction, allows the use of flexible risers, and implements a new tank tagging process.  We are confident that this will yield safer propane installations for our community.
