BUILDING INSPECTION

         Please go to E-Gov Services to download building/construction permits

All construction projects within the City of Vandalia shall be submitted for plan review prior to the start of construction. Development & Engineering Services employs two full time building inspectors, one full time electrical inspector and one zoning administrator to review plans and make inspections to assure compliance with all applicable codes. Additionally, the City contracts with a state certified plans examiner for review of all commercial & multi-family structures.

To help assure that construction can start on schedule, plans for residential construction should be submitted at least two weeks before the intended start date and plans for commercial and multi-family projects should be submitted three weeks prior to the anticipated start of construction. Plans are reviewed in the order submitted and, therefore, time for approval of any given set of plans is dependent upon the total number filed for review and the correctness of the plans when filed.
