The Department of Building Safety is responsible for the enforcement of all codes, laws and ordinances for the township relating to building, wiring, heating, plumbing and cooling.
The office issues all permits for building and construction, conducting inspections by registered inspectors to ensure sound work.
All plans are reviewed by the office before permits are issued. Township building employees meet with builders, architects and fire inspectors prior to the start of a large construction project to reiterate township ordinances and codes.
