Building Department & Planning Department
The Building Department issues building permits for new construction as well as alterations and repairs to existing structures. One individual serves the following four functions: Building Inspector, Code Enforcement Officer, Fire Marshal.
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.
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 Marshal.
The Planning Department facilitates the planning and zoning process by reviewing applications for land use and development regulations, zoning ordinances and environmental review.
