Building Permits

The front office staff processes all of the building permit applications within the Town, and contracts with ProCode INC., an independent building inspection agency to perform these inspections.

Building Permit Fees

Permit Fees are based on the valuation of project defined as labor, materials, plus profit, also including any electrical or plumbing. If the project is large enough a plan review will have to be completed by the building inspector.

Material Tax

The Town also has a 2% use tax on the total cost of the material.

Some of the projects where a building permit must be obtained include:
  • Additions to existing buildings
  • Basement refinish projects
  • Decks
