WHEN DOES MY PROJECT GET APPROVED BY THE VILLAGE?
When the project is complete, the applicant must call Safebuilt Inspections, Ltd. and request a final inspection. The inspector will review the work, and if it is approved, a certificate of occupancy will be signed and issued. The certificate of occupancy can then be obtained at the Village Hall for your personal records. Any new home or building addition will not be permitted to be occupied until a certificate of occupancy is approved. Violations of this ordinance can result in evictions, water service disconnection, and possible fines of up to $500.00 per day.
