•Print out the city standard that addresses your project, along with the permit application, and bring them to the building department located at 425 Webster St. during regular business hours. Usually a permit can be issued over the counter the same day.

Created in 1917, the Fire/Building Department is staffed by a fully qualified inspector, certified in all areas of the fire and building codes. An inspector examines both commercial & residential buildings for compliance with all applicable building, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, energy, fire and life-safety codes. Inspections are scheduled Monday-Thursday 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM. Once you receive your building permit, please fill out the form below to schedule inspections:


AMPM

The building inspection card (job card) and a set of approved plans (stamped “approved” by the Building Department) must be posted at the job site. 
A contact number should be provided in case of time or date change of inspection. 
If an inspection is called for and the job is not complete, a re-inspection fee of $98.00 may be imposed. 
ALL inspection sites must be properly addressed and clearly visible from the road for easy access. This is not only a building inspection request, but it is also necessary for the U.S. Mail, 911 emergency calls, and/or fire calls. 

If all of the above procedures are not followed, your inspection may not be scheduled! To ensure you receive your inspection in a timely manner, be sure to follow the above list!
