Building Codes

The Building Codes are a set of universally accepted standards adopted as guidelines for construction of buildings and related operations. 

Permits are required before performing any new construction or any addition, alteration or repair of existing buildings, structures, plumbing, electrical, or mechanical work (exception: all work which requires a permit but is performed outside of business hours for emergency reasons, must be submitted for a permit the next business day).  

All plans, permits, and inspections are currently being reviewed as follows:
