Building Department Forms

To All Property Owners Within The Village:

Please be aware that all construction or alterations to existing dwellings require a building permit from the Building Department. This includes exterior extensions, alterations, decks etc., interior alterations including finished basements or parts thereof.

Please contact the Building Department for guidance prior to any work being started.

The purpose is to protect you as an owner to insure any work that is performed is to code and is safe. In addition, if you do not have a C.O. (Certificate of occupancy) for any alteration work it could delay the resale of your home.

If you have any questions, we are here to answer them. Please call.

Yours truly,
Donald Alberto, R.A.
Superintendent of Building Department
