  • To schedule inspections, call the Building Inspection Office at 385-201-1035. Inspections will not be scheduled by voicemail, email, or online.
  • Note for General Contractors: It is important for the General Contractor to understand that it is his/her responsibility to be sure this project is constructed in full compliance with all state and local Codes and Ordinance. The plans are not all inclusive of all minimum codes and ordinances. This fact does not relieve the Contractor from compliance with all minimum standards. No omission from these plans gives permission for violation for any code or ordinance. No approval ever grants permission to violate any code or town ordinance.
