The Building Department issues building permits. One individual serves the following four functions: Building Inspector, Code Enforcement Officer, Fire Marshall, and Sign Code Director.
As Building Inspector this individual ensures that Village buildings meet the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Codes. This person also insures that codes are met issuing written orders if violations are found.
The Building Inspector also approves or rejects applications for new construction as well as alterations and repairs to existing structures. Working in conjunction with the Fire Department to enforce codes designed to reduce the chance of fire or explosion, the Building Inspector also acts as Fire Marshall. As Sign Code Director, the inspector checks existing or planned Village signs for compliance with our sign code.
