The City is committed to promoting an environment in which our citizens can live in and visit safe, accessible and healthy structures. 

Inspections are provided by city staff in accordance with adopted codes.

Permits and inspections are required for all new, permanent structures, and on major remodels which include changing the outside dimensions of a permanent structure, or major changes to the plumbing, electrical or mechanical systems. Fences and temporary structures typically do not require inspection or permitting. Non-typical construction may require permitting. The owner or contractor is responsible for meeting all applicable codes, as well as setback and zoning requirements. Any questions should be directed to City Hall at 231-9210.
