A notice will be sent to permit holder reminding them their permit will be expiring within 30 days. Letter will state if the permit is not finalized before the expiration date, there will be an onsite inspection performed and an inspection sheet will be placed in file stating at what stage the project is at.
If there is no response to the first letter, a second letter will be mailed stating they have 10 working days to renew the permit, or the Building Code Official will post a stop work order in the project, and the permit will be terminated.
If the previous stated procedures have not been completed, the person responsible must come in to the township offices and apply for a new building permit, and all fees not used on the old permit will be forfeited.
Any person not responding to our requests but continues to perform work will be issued a citation through the police department with out further notice.
This policy applies to all permits, including plumbing, mechanical, electrical and building. A copy of this policy will accompany all correspondence.
