DeKalb mulls sprinklers for NIU Greeks
DeKALB – The DeKalb City Council is considering requiring all fraternity and sorority houses
to have fire sprinklers installed by 2019.
Both city code and state law require Greek housing structures to have sprinkler systems installed; the question is how the city will use its home-rule authority to fully implement the Greek Housing Fire Safety Act, which took effect in 2011.
“Given that DeKalb is a home-rule community, the city is going to be looking at options as how to implement this,” Assistant City Manager Rudy Espiritu said.
