Building Services


The Building Department will be updating our BS&A permitting software from September 25th through October 13th.  

During this update, we are working to minimize any delays in permit processing and inspection scheduling. Nonetheless, from Wednesday, September 27th to Friday, September 29th we will not be able to utilize our permitting software system, and this will cause a delay in inputting new permits and issuing permits (that have not been paid prior to Wednesday, September 27th).  

Thank you for your patience during this software conversion process.
