Building Department



The Building Department is operational while maintaining current governmental guidelines as it is considered essential to community safety.  Please mail permits and relevant documents to the Building Department.  Permits can also be emailed with a check sent in the mail for the permit fee. Our Permit Application and fee schedule can be found on this website.  Inspections have been limited for the safety of the public.  Please contact the office for more details.

Thank you,

Tom Makowicki
