Robert Whalen, Building Commissioner

Bill Gazza, Wiring Inspector

Jay Catalano, Plumbing and Gas Inspector


Most individuals overlook the need of a permit until some catastrophic event occurs. We try to assure compliance with local zoning codes, with State Building Code, with the State Wiring Code, with the State Plumbing and Gas Code. From zoning issues to code review, from field inspections to structural conformity, from a hole in the ground to completion, the inspector is looking out for your best interest.

All construction codes serve the same purpose: to protect the public health, safety and welfare by requiring safe construction.
