When applying for a permit, include a copy of your building and site plans for review. The Building Commissioner is allowed up to 10 days to review plans. Acceptable payment for permits is by check or cash (exact amount only) until 3:30 p.m. daily. A 24-hour notice is required for all inspections to ensure you are in compliance with local ordinances and state adopted codes. A permit is valid for two years but is required to be started within the first year.
