The enforcement staff is state licensed, employed by the township, but funded by permit fees and not tax dollars.
The level of enforcement is also a factor used by insurers in determining rates for commercial and homeowner property insurance.
All permit applications must include a copy of the home improvement contractor's registration documentation.
Ordinary maintenance to structures may be made without filing a permit application with or giving notice to the construction official. To find out what types of maintenance are ordinary, visit the Ordinary Maintenance page.
