A building permit must be obtained from City Hall prior to beginning any work on a building project. The building inspector receives a copy so the permit does not need to be posted. The permit applicant (homeowner or contractor) is responsible for scheduling all required inspections, as well as a final inspection upon completion of the project. The permit applicant is also responsible for correcting any work that does not meet building code requirements. Building permit fees are based on the valuation of the building project.
