Building Department

The Building Department reviews building permit applications and plans for compliance with State and local building codes including structural, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and energy efficiency. The department also provides inspection and code enforcement services for all building related construction.

Over-the-Counter Review

  • The Building Official is available on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and on Wednesday from 8:00 a.m to 9:00 a.m.
  • During this time the Building Official is available to answer code questions and review minor residential projects such as kitchen and bathroom remodels over-the-counter.
  • Please note that the Building Official's counter hours are subject to change depending on staffing.
  • Please contact the office to determine whether or not your project qualifies for an over-the-counter review. (An example of a residential kitchen or bathroom remodel project that does not qualify for an over-the-counter review would be if the property is located in a Flood Zone)
