The Building Inspection Office is responsible for the examination of building plans and specifications to insure structural soundness and conformity with the adopted building codes and the issuance of building permits. The office is also responsible for the review of applications for mobile home permits. On site inspections are made at several different times during the building process to insure that construction or installation is in compliance with all adopted codes. The office also answers any code questions that may arise either by telephone or personal contact. The Building Department is also responsible for the licensing of contractors and specialty contractors within Columbia County; this is done through the Competency Advisory Board.
