We provide building inspections services to ensure public safety through properly constructed buildings. We strive to conduct ourselves with respect and expertise. We aim to make the inspection process as smooth and productive as possible for the people we serve in this community.

If you need a Building Permit, you may stop in the Village Clerk’s Office, located in the Village Hall, Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Fridays, 8:00 a.m. to noon, to obtain the permit form. You may also visit the Building Inspection Permits page to complete applications online. For building codes and regulations as well as fees, you must speak to the Inspection Department.  In addition, Electrical, Plumbing and HVAC permits may also be obtained at the Clerk’s Office or completed online at the Building Inspection Permits page.
