Building Inspection / Code Enforcement Office
The Building Inspector’s responsibilities consist of many aspects.
The Building Inspector does routine drive-bys of the town to be sure that the Building Codes are being followed correctly. The Building Inspector also does inspections of the same.
If you are going to build an addition to your home, erect a shed, install a swimming pool, erect a garage (attached or detached) , etc. you must call and file an application for a Building Permit with the Building Inspector before doing any construction. If you do not, and the Building Inspector finds you doing work, he may place a "Stop Order" and prevent you from continuing any further work until the necessary application is filed and permit issued.
Codes Enforcement is for your protection. Please do not begin a project which requires a permit without first getting a building permit.
