After receiving the permit, the applicant must advise the Code Enforcement Officer prior to any construction, and the Code Enforcement Officer shall make an on-site inspection of the building. Following completion of the installation and prior to the use of the heating stove or fireplace, the applicant shall advise the Code Enforcement Officer of completion of construction, and the Code Enforcement Officer will make a final inspection. If the Code Enforcement Officer finds that the installation is in accordance with the New York State Building Construction Code, he will issue a permit to use the heating stove or fireplace.
