Permit and Inspection Process

Various permits are required for the repair, construction, addition and renovation of commercial and residential buildings. Permits, once issued, allow for the necessary follow-up inspection to ensure that work is undertaken according to the proper Code or Standard.

The primary reason for this service is to protect the public and individual citizens by ensuring that your new house, for example, is built properly; that the structural components are adequate for the house design; that the electrical wiring is safe from the service mast to the outlet; that the plumbing system delivers water properly and safely removes wastes; and that your home provides adequate protection from weather.

This service is provided not just for your home, but the stores you shop in, the schools your children attend, the theatres you visit, in fact all of the buildings within the City limits.
