Does anyone know what the building code requires in Putnam County related to spacing between trusses?

Is there anyone out there who is knowledgeable about this who can make recommendations?

Generally it's 24", but 16" or 12" are also used at times.

The trusses themselves can be designed for any spacing. The important thing after the trusses are engineered is to use a decking that spans the spacing between the trusses.
