Always Plan Ahead!
Call me if you have questions regarding any Building or Zoning questions or concerns. The Town of Alexander charges triple the fee if a project is started prior to the issuance of a permit.

It is the responsibility of the permit holder to make all calls for permits and inspections. We require 24 hour advance notice for all inspections, depending on workloads we can be onsite in less than 24 hours if requested.

Call with any questions or clarifications as to what paperwork your project will need so as not to delay your project.
