The Building Department is staffed by ICC Certified personnel and has been awarded the highest ranking in the State of Michigan by the Insurance Services Office (ISO). The Department performs inspections and plan reviews of all development activites. Additionally, we are responsible for all zoning and planning functions relating to developmental growth of the community. Permit applications are taken through the assessing department for Buiding permits, Electrical permits, Mechanical permits, Plumbing permits, and rental inspections. Water and sewer inspections should be arranged per permit direction. The Township now is a full service department, recently having taken jurisdictional authority over the plumbing inspections.
Please download a permit and print it (not a fillable form, yet), fill it out and either bring it with you or mail it to us as a completed application. Permits are complete when all information requested has been provided and fees are paid.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call the Township for direction. ORDINANCES CAN BE FOUND online at www.municode.com in the online library (Michigan, then Benton Charter Township).
