When selling a house, the homeowner is required to arrange for an inspection by the Village prior to the sale. An application for a Point of Sale inspection must be completed at the Village Hall. The fee for inspection is $50 for each and every inspection.
After a home is inspected and no code violations are found, the Building Department will issue a Certificate of Occupancy, which allows the the homeowner to move in.
Inspections are conducted on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
A permit must be obtained prior to the start of construction, alterations, repairs or improvements to any part of a building or structure. To obtain a permit for residential or commercial work, a permit application must be completed. Permit fees start at $60 and increases according to the scope of the project.
When submitting a building permit application, the homeowner must attach a work order/proposal signed by both the contractor and the owner, listing the services to be performed. The proposal must include the total cost of the project.
All documents must be attached to applications - faxed or emailed documents will not be accepted.
A homeowner must obtain a building permit to install an alarm system. Once installed, the alarm must be registered per our Village Ordinance. The cost of the one-time registration fee is $25. A homeowner is allowed three false alarms within a year before being charged a $50 fine by the Village. However, if an alarm is not registered, the first false alarm will result in a $50 fine.
