Code Enforcement Responsibilities

Ensuring the protection of life and property is paramount within our community, and the Code Enforcement Officer plays a crucial role in upholding these standards. With a wide range of responsibilities, the Code Enforcement Officer is tasked with enforcing laws and regulations to maintain safety and compliance.

Among their duties, the Code Enforcement Officer responds to personal observations and complaints from the public. Additionally, they meticulously review all Building Permit applications and conduct inspections for various construction activities, including alterations, demolitions, new constructions, and additions to existing structures.

For detailed information on these requirements, you can refer to New York State Law, Local Village Law, or visit our FAQ page. While many projects require approval and inspection, there are exceptions outlined in the regulations. For example, re-roofing buildings with satisfactory existing conditions may not require a permit or inspection. Similarly, one-story detached structures associated with dwellings may be exempt from certain requirements, provided they meet specific criteria.
