Residential Certificate of Occupancy Application
Residential Certificate of Occupancy (CO)
Before an owner/tenant can occupy or change the title of a house or apartment, it must meet certain requirements. The Housing Official must inspect prior to occupancy. Inspections are conducted on Wednesdays, the cost of which is $50.00. If a second inspection is warranted there is no cost, but if there is a third inspection, there is a cost of an additional $50.00.
Business Certificate of Occupancy (BCO)
All commercial occupancies require approval to operate. This approval is granted, after Zoning Officer approval, and after a fee has been paid ($35.00) and all inspections have been satisfied. A Certificate of Continuing Occupancy (CCO) is also required for every non-residential property whenever a change in occupancy occurs; which involves re-inspections of all areas of life safety. Construction permits must be obtained for all proposed modifications.
