Building, Zoning, and Fire Prevention

The purpose of the Building, Zoning, and Fire Prevention Department is to provide protection from hazards of fire, inadequate building construction and improper maintenance in residential and non-residential buildings through the enforcement of Local and State Codes, Rules and Regulations. Enforcement is enacted through the issuance of permits, notices and orders, performance of inspection and issuance of certificates.

Our Department ensures that no building, structure or land shall be used and no building, structure or part thereof shall be erected, moved or altered unless for a use expressly permitted by and in conformity with the regulations specified for the Village of Millerton.
