Building and Fire Services

The Building department administers and enforces building regulations. We are responsible for zoning approval, building permits, certificate of occupancy, certificate of compliance, zoning enforcement, variances and other zoning related issues. We are also responsible for ordinance enforcement including construction codes and property maintenance codes.


Notice

Effective immediately NYS requires a workers comp exemption prior to the issuance of a building permit for homeowners not hiring a contractor. Visit New York State Business Express to obtain your certificate.
