Chief Building Official 

The Building Department enhances the general safety, health and welfare of the public through the adoption and enforcement of the most current building, electrical, plumbing and other codes. The department also regulates and maintains all township building and zoning codes.

The goal of the Building Department is to provide the highest quality service with the greatest efficiency. The customers for the department are external and internal; They include the general public, contractors, design professionals, legal professionals, the Fire Department, Planning and Engineering Department, and representatives of various state agencies.

Code enforcement plays an important role in the community, not only with regard to new construction, but also with the repair and alteration of existing buildings. Because the building industry is ever changing, code enforcement personnel must stay informed regarding new materials, processes and practices. The department exerts a positive influence on the environment and contributes to the economic health and well being of the community as both an educator and valuable resource.
