Building/Plumbing Permits

DO I NEED A BUILDING PERMIT?

 

Permits are usually required for demolitions, extensions, fences, driveways, decks, pools (above and in-ground), lawn sprinkler installations, tool sheds etc.  If you are unsure whether a permit is needed for a potential project please call the Village Office at 746-0782.

The Building Inspector accepts and reviews applications for building/plumbing permits. He or she also performs periodic construction site inspections to insure compliance with approved plans. 

BOARD OF ZONING AND APPEALS

If the Building Inspector denies a permit, there is an appeals process.  The Village has its own Board of Zoning and Appeals and an application for relief from the zoning code may be made before them.

Application fee to the Board of Appeals is $500
