The Building and Safety Department is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the uniform codes pertaining to federal, state, and city adopted laws and ordinances. This responsibility includes meeting state mandates to assure all structures meet or exceed the minimum life safety standards of the codes, laws, and ordinances.

effective 12-7-2020 city hall is closed to the public.

to contact someone within the building division, the most effective way is to contact our general mailbox.  during the current times and limited staff our general mailboxes is available by all staff members to respond to inquiries.  unfortunately, when you contact a specific person their response may be delayed due to several factors.  if you do contact a specific employee for general questions or plan check status, your email or voice mail will be forwarded to the general mailbox anyway.
