Welcome to the Building Department! Our goal is to provide services that result in compliance with minimum housing, building and safety laws, and to serve customers in a timely, efficient, and effective manner. Permits are accepted for processing and/or issuance, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am until 3:30 pm.
 
For existing structures, built without the benefit of a permit there is a separate As-Built Permitting Process. Please remember, 'Assessed' does not mean 'Permitted'.
