In Our Opinion: City wise to look at code change

(Continued)

We realize that any additional regulation constitutes an additional burden, however minimal, for businesses that already face quite a substantial amount of red tape. But a $30 CO detector that needs little more than its batteries replaced from time to time doesn’t seem like an extreme thing to ask businesses to provide. 

In the meantime, we encourage businesses that do not already have CO detectors installed to consider doing so, regardless of what the code requires. It could not only help protect customers and employees, but it could also save a business owner’s own life. And surely that’s worth $30.
