Building Department

The role of the Building Department is to determine if a building permit is required and if so, to issue the necessary permits. Applications for permits must be submitted directly to the Building Department where they will be reviewed. The application is then dispersed to the Planning, Zoning and Utility departments for approval. Once the other departments have signed off on the project, the Building Official approves the submitted plans according to building code.

The Building Permit Application checklist will help guide you through the application process. Please feel free to contact Clara Hebert, Building Coordinator, should you have any questions. She can be reached Monday - Thursday 8:00am - 4:00pm, Friday 8:00am - 12:00pm.

Permit applications can be submitted by mail, fax, email or in person.
