Building Permits

The Village Ordinance Book and Uniform Dwelling Code states in part: No addition, alteration or repair to an existing structure not deemed minor repair by the Planning Board shall be started unless a building permit for the work is obtained PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION from the Building Inspector. This includes decks and fences. MINOR REPAIR is defined as repair performed for maintenance or replacement purposes under $1,000.00 final end value in any twelve (12) month period. PENALTY FOR VIOLATION of not securing a building permit prior to construction will be withholding of the building permit, imposition of forfeitures and/or doubling of the permit fees.

As of January 1, 2005, the building structure and heating, electrical or plumbing systems shall comply with the Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling Code (UDC). Any major structural changes or any major changes to mechanical systems (electrical, heating, plumbing) shall require permits. The building inspector for General Engineering will be handling all of these permits, after Village Planning Board approval, and will be inspecting as the construction progresses. Building permit applications can be obtained from the Randolph Village Hall or by contacting Building Inspector Ken Fennewald at (608) 697-8009.
