Planning to Build or Remodel?
Don't Start Without a Permit.
Are you planning to do some updating on your home? It is important that you contact the Township Building Inspector before starting any project. Building codes were developed to protect the health, safety and welfare of the occupants and owners of property. Structures that are built in compliance with building code add value to your community. They last longer, sell faster and increase the return on your valuable investment.
For Building Permits and/or questions call Elroy Theis, Building Inspector. 320-224-2907.
