The Code Enforcement Office administers the Zoning Ordinance, State and Federal regulations, and building codes.
Most questions and permitting can be addressed in a 15 minute visit during our walk-in hours; however, if your visit is for a new home, or commercial project you may be asked to schedule an appointment with a Code Enforcement Officer.
If you are planning to re-build or build a new home you will be asked to put together a packet of items for review prior to being issued a Building Permit. You can submit this packet of items to the Code Enforcement Office anytime between 8:00 - 4:30 Monday through Friday. After the packet is reviewed, you will be contacted for an appointment for the permit to be issued. This process generally takes about 2 weeks.
Please contact Catherine if you have any questions.
