Building Department


BerthoudLogo150Mission Statement

The Building Department is responsible for the building permit and inspection process for all commercial, industrial and residential projects within the Town.  It has an express goal of maintaining a safe building environment for our residents. This is accomplished through quality plan review and inspections.

Permit Information

All construction projects, whether done by a property owner or by a licensed contractor may require building permits and review.  Virtually all commercial constructions requires a permit and plan review.  Many projects done by residential property owners may require a permit including:

  • Deck construction or remodel
  • Basement finish
  • Roof replacement or repair
  • Storage shed construction

Building permits may be obtained from Town Hall, by faxing to 970-532-0640, Attn: Sue Bowles, or by downloading the following file:

When approved, permit fees may be paid for in person with check or cash, or with a credit card.  To pay by credit card over the phone, contact Sue Bowles at 970-344-5808 or Patti Swiger at 970-344-5810.

It is important to have your project reviewed and a permit issued prior to purchasing of materials.  Part of the permit fee includes town use taxes.  Showing your permit document to the supplier of your materials will avoid paying those taxes twice.  For further information on Use Tax on building Permits, download the following file:
