Inspections & Permits


The Building Inspectors issue construction-related permits and perform construction inspections for all new construction and major renovations to existing structures.

  • Certificate of occupancy inspections (before the building can be occupied for residency or for commercial use)
  • Concrete
  • Electrical
  • Final building inspections
  • Footings
  • Natural gas
  • Plumbing
  • Structural


Once installed, all major household appliances such as water heaters and furnaces, whether related to replacement of an existing appliance or installed during new construction, must be inspected by the Building Inspectors.
