The City enforces the Florida Building Code. Permits are required for a number of construction activities which include but are not limited to: new construction, additions, alterations, storage sheds, in ground or above ground pools, garages, carports, fencing, driveways, patios or decks, interior remodeling, roof replacement, signs, heating and air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, sewer, septic tank and drain field work. All construction with a value over $100 will require a building permit.

Building Department inspectors receive applications, issue permits and make inspections as required by the 2017 building code. All plans must be reviewed for compliance with the various codes and zoning regulations. The cost of a permit is nominal, however, construction without obtaining a permit can be very costly.
