Our Goal is to provide protection for the health, safety, and welfare of the general public in relation to the use and occupancy of structures by enforcement of adopted building codes and to protect the general public from abuse by unlicensed contractors by enforcement of state contractor licensing laws.

Beginning June 3rd, 2009 changes take effect on permit requirement and fees.

If you construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a building or other residential structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system, the installation of which is regulated by this code, or to cause any such work to be done whenever the reasonable cost of the material and labor for such work is in excess of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), you shall first make application to the Inspection Department and obtain the required permits. Whenever the work being performed includes any construction, alteration, addition, or modification to the plumbing drainage system, or requires disconnection of the electrical system in any way whatsoever, any owner or authorized agent shall first make application to the building official and obtain the required permit regardless of the reasonable cost of the material and labor for such work. Other work requiring permits and inspections include: roofing, re-roofing, window replacement, siding, swimming pools and spas, and all commercial work regardless of cost.

If you have questions as to whether your project requires permits, please call our office prior to the commencement of any work.
