The Construction Department is responsible for enforcing the regulations of the State Uniform Construction Code, which was established by the State of New Jersey to ensure that new construction (commercial, industrial and residential) adhere to the minimum standards of workmanship and safety.

Construction Permit

When building, remodeling or adding onto your home or business, a construction permit is generally required. During the planning stage of your project and before you begin construction, call or visit the Construction Department. Your permit application will be customized based on the type of construction you are planning.
