The purpose and function of the Building Department is to ensure public safety along with health and welfare, during building construction and renovation to secure the safety of life and property from hazards incidental to the design, erection, repair and occupancy of buildings through proper inspection practices; and to preserve the appearance and property value of existing housing through efficient code enforcement.
"Notice of Violation" letters are issued when citizens and others fail to comply with village ordinance. Non-traffic citations are issued if no cooperation is received following the "Notice of Violation." Building Department personnel and the Village Attorney, represent the village in court on these matters.
