About the Building Department

The Building Department administers all building, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and property maintenance codes, both state and federal. The division is also responsible for administering a wide variety of township ordinances, i.e., sign, noise, blight, rental registration, rental inspection, and sewer.  Staff conducts inspections and also serves as support staff for the Plumbing, Mechanical, Electrical, Property Maintenance, and Sign Board of Appeals. In addition, the staff will review, analyze, and process building plan reviews and issue permits as allowed, as well as assisting architects, engineers, code officials, and homeowners with construction-related questions.
