Building and Safety

The Building Official has a wide range of responsibilities including calculating and collecting permit and development fees, issuing permits, conducting inspections of projects under construction to verify compliance with Building, Plumbing, and Electrical Codes, and confirming that projects are being built according to the approved plans.

The Building Official is also responsible for issuing Stop Work notices for any construction project being worked on without the appropriate City permits.
