Why do I need a permit?

Permits provide the property owner with the following:

  1. The contractor chosen to perform the work has the appropriate documentation on file with the Village, specifically, license and insurance. Contractor's required to have specific documentation on file with the Village prior to the issuance of any permit are electrical contractors, excavators, roofers, plumbers, sewer contractors and fire suppression contractors.
  2. The required inspections are completed so that the project meets the minimum construction standards required by code.
  3. The intended project is designed to meet our codes.
