Building Permits and Inspection Services
Protecting the public’s health, safety and welfare is our highest priority. The construction of safe buildings is achieved through the adoption and application of nationally recognized building codes adopted by the City Council. The International Code Council or ICC is a nationally recognized association which publishes the International Building Codes. The City of Cumby has adopted these codes and our Building Inspector and Plan Review are charged with reviewing and inspecting all construction activities within the city, in conformance to these standards.
Through the issuance of building permits, certificates of occupancy, and fire & safety inspections, ensures that all structures conform to the adopted codes.
All contractors need to be registered with the City of Cumby before you apply for a permit. These trades include: General Contractor, Electrician, Plumber, Mechanical, Sign, Backflow, Demolition, Fence, Fire Alarms, Fire Sprinklers, Fire Suppression, Foundation, Irrigation, Pool, and Roofing Contractors.
For large projects, the General Contractor will apply for the permit, but each of the trades will have to validate on the permit for their trade before the permit can be issued.
For smaller or individual permits, each trade that is registered will apply for and pay for their specific permit.
There is no Registration Fee, however, we ask that all Contractors register with the City.
Each contractor must be licensed in one of the following areas:
