The mission of the Construction Department is to ensure adequate construction and maintenance of buildings and structures throughout the Township and to adequately protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents and business owners. This is accomplished by issuing permits for residential, commercial and industrial construction, performing various inspections throughout the project, and issuing final certificates of approval and occupancy. The Department conducts inspections in order to determine that all work is completed in accordance with the State Uniform Construction Code and all applicable prior approvals. All Uniform Construction Code inspectors are licensed by the State of New Jersey. The Department is self-supporting through fees generated from permits and certificates.

BE ADVISED THAT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT IS NOW PROCESSING AND PERFORMING INSPECTIONS FOR A CERTIFICATE OF CONTINUED OCCUPANCY (CCO) AKA RESALE CO AND YOU MAY SEND THE APPLICATION, WHICH IS AVAILABLE ONLINE, TO 375 FRANKLIN STREET. (June 2020)
