The Building Department assists residents and businesses in fulfilling the State of Michigan building, mechanical, and electrical construction codes. These construction codes are intended to protect the public health, safety and welfare. Project plan review, permit issuance, progress inspections and the issuance of final certificates of occupancy occur with various construction projects.
