Building Inspection

The Department of Building Inspection (located within the Plover Fire Department) is responsible for the administration and enforcement of Building, Plumbing, HVAC, Electrical and Zoning Codes. The primary purpose of these codes is to safeguard life. The secondary purpose is to protect and generally preserve and to enhance the values of property in the Village.

Building Permits

BUILDING PERMITS ARE APPLIED FOR ONLINE through our InspectWiz program.
