BUILDING, ELECTRICAL, PLUMBING, SEWER PERMITS
We would like to remind residents that we secured the services of Superior Safety Codes as our sole provider of safety codes permits including electrical, plumbing, building, etc. You must apply for these permits.
If you are planning on building or renovating, you must obtain the proper permits before commencing work. We encourage you to visit Superior Safety Codes at www.superiorsafetycodes.com. and information booklets are also available at the Village Office.
Fire Permits are available at the Village Office at no charge. A Fire Permit must be obtained for all fires not in a contained pit. Only untreated wood, paper and leaves should be burned in these fire pits. All fires are to be within the property lines of the person the fire permit was issued to.
Fines can be imposed if the Fire Department feels adequate caution was not taken while burning or if they respond to a fire on your property resulting from a deliberate fire set without obtaining a permit.
For more detailed information on fire pits please refer to Open Burning Bylaw #311 in the Bylaw section of this website.
