Owners who receive a department or municipal inspector’s notice that an elevator upgrade is needed before a new law’s effective date, which is Aug. 1, 2011, have until Dec. 30, 2011, to submit a compliance plan to the Department of Labor and Industry. Those who receive a notice after that date must submit a plan by the later of Dec. 30, 2011, or 60 days after receiving the notice.
Upgrades must be completed by the later of Jan. 29, 2012, or three years after they submit their plan. If owners don’t comply within those deadlines, the elevator may be taken out of service.
The law is sponsored by Rep. Tom Hackbarth (R-Cedar) and Sen. James Metzen (DFL-South St. Paul).
