Balcony Load Question

Hey guys, so I'm not a professional but I have a question. Moving into a new construction Apartment with a balcony that is about 6' wide and 15' long its built with 2x10 joists 16in on center. What is the maximum load per square foot? In Salt Lake City code is 40lb. Can I put a hottub that is 29sq ft weighing 2,000lb (hot tub, water, people). Thanks![/LIST]
