The Building and Zoning Department provides a knowledge base of experience and necessary paperwork concerning building and construction matters. We receive applications required by the State, issue permits, and furnish the prescribed certificates. We examine the property to ensure compliance with the law and construction safety and take action to remove illegal and unsafe conditions.
It is recommended to call the office if you would like to come in to ensure someone is available to help you as we are at times on inspections or at other Town Buildings.
