Building permits must be obtained through the Inspections Office.  An inspection of the building site must be done prior to the permit being issued.  A fire inspection is also required and can be arranged through the Inspections Office as well.  Please call the office to make arrangements for any necessary inspections.

Elevation maps are available to the public for viewing, however to obtain an Elevation Certificate, the property must be surveyed by a licensed surveyor.  

The purpose of the Code Enforcement Officer is to enforce state and county building codes.  These codes, while sometimes frustrating to property owners, are designed to protect the homeowner and the local environment.
