Building Safety

Building Safety staff make sure that new homes, new businesses, and changes made to existing structures are safe and built to last. 

Building Inspectors check on all construction, remodels, and additions that require a permit. Building Inspectors work with homeowners, contractors, and developers to make sure all work done at a property is safe and up to code.
