Building Permit Inspections

Building Inspections are required during each stage of construction to ensure compliance with Village and State Codes. Inspections are required as shown on your building permit.


Applications may be made by: owner or lessees, or agent of either, or by architect, engineer, or builder employed in connection with the proposed work, but in all cases the property owner MUST sign application.

All applications are to be dropped off at either: the Village Hall’s main counter/Electric Company or the Code Enforcement Department.  All approved applications must be picked up and paid  for at the Village Hall Counter/Electric Company.

The permit will be reviewed as soon as possible normal review time is as follows:

A) Residential: approximate  1-1 ½  weeks (usually less).

B) Commercial or very large projects: approximate  1-2 ½ weeks (or more depending on necessary village approvals).

**Amendments: An amendment to the application or plans can be filed at any time prior to the completion of the project, subject to the Code Enforcement Officer’s approval.

Building Permits are in effective from the date issued for a period of 12 months. Construction MUST commence within 90-days or permit can be VOIDED.

NOTE: A permit is only valid for 12 months, if your project is not completed in this time frame, please contact the Code Enforcement Department, as soon as possible, to see if permit can be extended or new permit and fee is  required.
