Building Department

The function of the Building Department is to enforce the State Basic Building Codes, local Codes, ordinances and regulations. We review plans for construction work prior to issuing Building Permits, make on-site inspections during building construction or alteration, including electrical, plumbing, piping, swimming pool, shed, oil tank, gas piping, roofing, siding, replacement windows, etc. We also inspect potentially hazardous buildings subject to condemnation, investigate complaints or suspected building violations, and assist in follow-up legal proceeding, which may include acting as a witness in court proceedings.

Online Permitting

The Building Department is working on providing online permitting for contractors and homeowners. The online permits are going to be for Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing, and General Carpentry not requiring Health, Zoning and Department of Public works, approvals. It is the intent of the building department to expand the online permitting to all permits in the future. The online portal is located in the upper right section of the webpage and is currently under construction. In the next couple months we hope to have portal fully functional.
