CODE ENFORCEMENT

The Town of Conesville adheres to New York State building codes. Please contact the code enforcement officer prior to commencing any construction. Most, if not all upcoming projects will require a permit and/or inspections. These help ensure that any construction meets the official safety standards for a 'New York Certificate of Occupancy'. We cannot stress enough the importance of this preliminary step.

BUILDING PERMITS

You must apply for a permit, in order to start any construction project, such as: building a driveway, building a home, installing a pool, or a home renovation.
Please contact the town clerk to obtain the official documentation.
Building permits are valid for one year from the date of issue. Permits can be renewed if the project is not completed at that time.
Please note: Range of Inspections required. (Including all footings prior to basement pour).
It is important to keep the code enforcement officer informed during all stages during the building process. The timeliness of inspections will allow your project to progress. Never commence a construction project without a permit. Failing to obtain a permit, may result in delays or construction being halted permanently.
