BUILDING PERMITS

BUILDING PERMITS
To clarify questions we’ve been receiving lately, building permit applications and site plans for building outside of the home and new construction need to be submitted to the clerk’s office at least 14 to 30 days before the permit can be issued. Each of these applications are reviewed for compliance with zoning codes by the contracted Village zoning administrator.
After approval from the zoning administrator, the building inspector will write the permit.

Building permit applications for in-home requirements can be submitted at any time to the clerk’s office. The Village, like many municipalities in the area, contracts with an outside building inspection firm and does not have an in-house inspector. The building inspector is only in the Village every Thursday at 7 a.m. to write permits; however, he is available for inspections as needed.

Applications and zoning codes can be found on the Village website. Please include a site plan, if needed, with your application. Deliver, mail or email the completed application and site plan to the clerk’s office.
