Building Safety & Permits

The Building Safety Section is responsible for ensuring the public safety through the enforcement of Federal, state, and local codes governing construction. Our staff reviews plans, issues building permits, and performs inspections to ensure Code compliance related to aspects of life-safety, structural integrity, handicap accessibility, and electrical, plumbing, fuel gas, heating and air conditioning systems.

For questions regarding construction and building permits, please call and speak with one of our building inspectors at (217) 535-3145.
