The Township Building Official is in charge of administering and enforcing the Michigan Building Codes. The Building Official reviews plans, issues permits and inspects and maintains records on all construction projects in the Township.
The following information is required to be submitted to the Township before a building permit can be issued. If you have questions, contact the Township Building Inspector at (616) 399-6121.
As of April 1, 2015, permit fees for electrical, mechanical and plumbing permits are as follows:
The Township will send a bill at $60 per inspection for any inspections not covered by the original permit fee (such as re-inspections). This means if at the time the Township receives the final inspection report and there have been more inspections completed that what was paid for, you will be billed.
Permit applications must be filled out completely, with the work to be done itemized. Permit fees are based only on the number of inspections necessary, not the itemized work. Be to sign the application and return the entire form to the Township Hall. If approved, the white copy will be returned to you as a permit with a permit number and the phone number of the Township Building Inspector.
