New construction and remodeling has an impact on nearby residents. Please be aware of noise and waste ordinances. No building materials (used or unused) should be stored outdoors. When conducting inspections, the Code Compliance Officer looks to insure that all construction within the city has necessary permits.

The city has established construction hours Monday - Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. Building permits are required for all construction. Construction that occurs without a permit will be issued a Stop Work Order and could be subject to fines and penalties.
