The Building Inspector, hereinafter referred to as the "Local Administrator," is responsible for receiving applications, examining the plans and specifications and issuing permits for the proposed construction or development.
No person shall erect, construct, enlarge, alter, repair, improve, move, or demolish any building or structure without first obtaining a separate permit for each building or structure from the Local Administrator.
No man-made change to improved or unimproved real estate, including but not limited to buildings or other structures, mining, dredging, filling, grading, paving, excavation or drilling operations, shall be commenced until a separate permit has been obtained from the Local Administrator for each change.
No manufactured home shall be placed on improved or unimproved real estate without first obtaining a separate permit for each mobile home from the Local Administrator.
To obtain a permit, the applicant shall first file a permit application on a form furnished for that purpose. The form must be completed and submitted to the Local Administrator with a fee of $50 before the issuance of a permit will be considered.
After reviewing the application, the Local Administrator shall require any additional measures which are necessary to meet the minimum requirements of this chapter.
The Local Administrator shall review proposed development to assure that all necessary permits have been received from those governmental agencies from which approval is required by federal or state law, including Section 404 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972, 33 U.S.C. § 1334.
The Local Administrator shall review all permit applications to determine whether proposed building sites will be reasonably safe from flooding. If a proposed building site is in a flood prone area, all new construction and substantial improvements (including the placement of prefabricated buildings and mobile homes) shall:
The Local Administrator shall review subdivision proposals and other proposed new development to determine whether such proposals will be reasonably safe from flooding. If a subdivision proposal or other proposed new development is in a flood prone area, any such proposals shall be reviewed to assure that
All such proposals are consistent with the need to minimize flood damage within the flood prone area;
All public utilities and facilities, such as sewer, gas, electrical, and water systems, are located and constructed to minimize or eliminate flood damage; and
Adequate drainage is provided to reduce exposure to flood hazards.
The Local Administrator shall require within flood-prone areas new and replacement water supply systems to be designed to minimize or eliminate infiltration of flood waters into the systems.
The permitting official shall require within flood prone areas:
New and replacement sanitary sewage systems to be designed to minimize or eliminate infiltration of flood waters into the systems and discharges from the systems into flood waters; and
On-site waste disposal systems to be located to avoid impairment to them or contamination from them during flooding.
