The Building Code Board of Appeals is a five-members board that consists of three that are residents of the city and two residents of the two-mile extraterritorial jurisdiction. The board is interested in serving in matters pertaining to building code appeals. 

The duties and responsibilities of the Building Code Board of Appeals include hearing and deciding appeals of orders, decisions, or determinations made by the building official relative to the application and interpretation of the building codes of the City of Pella. The board also advises the City Council on matters pertaining to building code amendments, where such amendments are identified as necessary through the appeal process
