Building Inspection Services

Please note new permit applications and fee increases effective January 1, 2020. Updated forms will be posted online as they are available.

The Building Inspection Department is primarily responsible for overseeing new construction and alterations of commercial and residential buildings, the installation of plumbing, electrical, and heating / air conditioning systems. Plans are reviewed and permits are issued with conditional approval within the restrictions of state and village codes.

Inspections are made at various stages of construction. For each inspection made, a written report is filed. These reports are kept in property files as a history of the property for current and future owners. Property files are public record and open for public inspection during regular office hours.
