The Division of Permits and Inspections greatly contributes to the City of Brunswick by preserving neighborhoods and ensuring the safety and integrity of the buildings constructed in the City. The department references the Ohio Building Code, Ohio Plumbing Code, Ohio Mechanical Code, International Property Maintenance Code, National Electrical Code, as well as the Brunswick Codified Ordinance.
The building clerks and inspectors create the most effective and efficient way of providing all services to both your commercial and residential projects. The staff registers building contractors, issues permits, schedules and performs building inspections. The department also performs inspections related to storm water run off and sediment control to meet Ohio EPA requirements.
The building department staff provides residents an involved systematic approach to the enforcement and abatement of any zoning nuisance or property maintenance violation. The City of Brunswick Building Department Inspectors completed over 1300 inspections on property maintenance violations this year. The inspectors take great pride by abating any nuisance that may constitute a blighting or deteriorating effect in the neighborhoods and community.
