Prior to starting any new building project, residents are encouraged to make an appointment with the Borough to review the permitting process. Regular office hours for zoning review are Wednesdays, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.; Thursdays, 9 a.m.-noon, and Fridays, 1 p.m.-3 p.m.

Any owner or authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system, the installation of which is regulated by Code, or to cause any such work to be done, shall first make application to the building official and obtain the required permit.

Please note: The Borough does not accept permit applications via fax. A drop box is located outside Borough Hall and a drop-off basket is available in the building foyer. Permits are also accepted by mail.
