DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF TREE DAMAGE WE HAVE EXPERIENCED IN THE CITY FROM HURRICANE IRMA, WE SUGGEST THAT RESIDENTS COME IN TO APPLY FOR A NO FEE TREE REMOVAL/REPLANTING PERMIT IF THE TREE HAS BEEN UPROOTED FROM THE GROUND OR IF THE TREE HAS DIED BECAUSE OF THE STORM.
Our mission is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of City residents and the business community through the enforcement of building codes and standards. To this end, we issue building permits based on approvals of plans for residential and commercial projects
The Building Division ensures that certified inspectors:
1. Perform the required inspections in structural, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical trades
2. Schedule and track inspections for the zoning, landscaping, engineering, and fire departments
3. Issue certificates of occupancy
This division also oversees the issuance of waste hauler registrations for the community.
Inspection requests & results are available through the ETtrakit portal online (see the instructions below), To submit an online form requesting an inspection click here, or contact the building department at 954-753-5447.
