The primary objectives of the Building Inspection Division are to provide construction standards enforcement to safeguard health and property in the interest of public welfare. This is accomplished through City ordinances, adoption of model codes and standards, inspection of construction, alterations, moving, demolition, repair and use of buildings and structures. The building Inspection Division issues required permits, checks building plans for compliance with code requirements, validates contractors; licenses and workers compensation insurance, performs inspections during the course of construction and maintains records of all activities of the division. The division inspects substandard buildings and issues notices for rehabilitation or demolition, if required. This Division is responsible for enforcement of building codes as they apply to all phases of site plan, building and structure inspections.
