2008 Annual Report

In 2008, 281 building permits were processed and inspections were done as needed to support those efforts. Building permits are good for a year and, if construction is ongoing, can be renewed. If renewed before the expiration date there is no fee.

Existing buildings, especially residential rental units, are inspected to ensure proper maintenance and operation. Buildings are inspected on receipt of a complaint or on a scheduled basis. Complaints are given a high priority while scheduled inspections are done as resources are available. The emphasis here is to ensure safe and healthy conditions. In 2008, there were 167 inspections done.

Notable events during 2008 included the following. The heavy snow loads caused 16 partial collapses of structures. These buildings ranged from utility sheds to major commercial structures.
