Community Development

Certificate of Occupancy

A Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) is necessary prior to occupancy of any building of lease space.  The fee for a C of O is $125.  This fee pays for two (2) inspections one by the Building Inspector and one by the Fire Marshall.

Once a completed application and fee is received in the Community Development Office an inspection will be scheduled to assure building safety, the correct zoning for your use, and adequate occupancy for your use.  Once your inspection is approved by the Building Inspector you must wait on the Fire Marshall to perform their inspection for fire safety and occupancy.  If approved by both inspectors, you will be allowed to move into the lease space or building, set-up electrical service and begin operation of your business.
