Building Inspections & Permits

March 19, 2020 - In light of the public health emergency declaration due to the novel coronavirus, we have implemented specific procedures for conducting business with our department. Please read them before coming to City Hall. 

The mission of the Building Inspections & Permits Department is to ensure the safety and welfare of the general public by enforcing structural, building, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical code regulations within the City. Enforcement is achieved through plan review prior to the issuance of a permit and on-site inspections after permit issuance to verify compliance throughout the construction process.

It is essential that you contact us before you begin construction to find out if you need a permit. Even if a permit is not needed, we will answer construction questions and may provide valuable advice.
