The Building Department is responsible for issuing all required permits and performing inspections. The primary responsibility of the Building Department is to maintain the state mandated system for processing permits, performing inspections, to track and pursue code violation and unsafe structures.
The permit process begins with a plan review. This is to ensure compliance with applicable codes and standards. Upon final inspections and approvals, the permit process ends when the project or installation is certified for occupancy and/or use. The ultimate goal is to make all buildings and structures in the municipality safe for the intended occupancy and use.
