FAQ

Q:

What type of work requires permits?

A:

Building permits and inspections are required for most types of construction and alterations (residential and commercial) including: re-roofing, siding, additions, sheds, pools, new and replacement furnaces, water heaters, central air, sprinkler systems (both fire and irrigation), fuel tanks (abandonment and new installations), alarm systems (burglar and fire), fences, porch enclosures, attic conversions, basement renovations, fireplaces, demolitions, sump pumps, plumbing and electrical work.
 


Q:

What steps do I take when I want work done on my home or business?

A:

First call the building department to determine whether or not a permit is required. If construction will take place outside of the existing structure, bring a property survey map to the building department so that the zoning officer can review the proposed work for compliance with the Town Ordinances.
 


Q:

Can I do my own work?

A:

You can do your own building, electrical and plumbing work ONLY in your owner occupied, single family detached dwelling. All the permits and inspections are required.
 


Q:

Can my sump pump be configured to pump directly in to the sanitary sewer lines?

A:

No. Too much water interrupts the proper operation of the sewage treatment facility.
