Protecting life safety and improving the quality of life of our citizens and their neighborhoods through dedicated service and enforcement of the building codes and city ordinances.
The building department conducts inspections on commercial and residential construction projects, as well as, locate and monitor un-safe and vacant structures for potential demolition and/or rehabilitation. We issue permits and licenses to contractors and manage the city’s code enforcement efforts, such as property maintenance and cleanliness of premises. The grass and weed control program is an added division of code enforcement that is managed through the building department and plays a vital role in our successful property management program. We serve as a resource to contractors, developers and citizens and provide assistance when needed in the areas of construction and code enforcement.
The building commission board members meet the first Monday of the month at 4:00 P.M. beginning in January.
