Permitting

All new construction, additions, alterations, repairs, service equipment change outs, and construction in general cannot be built until a plan of the proposed work is submitted to the building official and a permit is issued.  That includes, but is not limited to, fences, swimming pools, parking lots, driveways, etc. 

If you are in doubt as to whether or not a permit is required, call  863-983-1500 or check the City's Code online (see below).  Remember - building codes are not another red-tape nuisance.  These codes protect you by ensuring the completed work meets specific quality standards that protect you and your neighbors.

Plan Review:

The Building Official will review applications and supporting documentation for compliance with the Florida Building Codes as mandated by the Florida legislature.

The City requires proof of licensure and insurance from contractors who pull permits within the City, so be sure to instruct the contractor to obtain the permit in his name, not your name.

Inspections:

The Building Official will inspect all buildings or structures during the construction, repair, or removal for which a permit has been issued. 

Inspections are conducted on all types of residential and commercial structures for Building, Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing.  Call 863-983-1500 for more information or to schedule an inspection.
