The drop box in front of City Hall will remain. 

Plans can be dropped off for review and you will be notified when they are ready for pick-up.

In-person business will still be honored, but only for business that cannot be transacted via the drop box or telephone.  Facial coverings will be required along with physical distancing procedures put in place for public and staff safety. For an appointment, please call 954.753.5447.

Our mission is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of City residents and the business community through the enforcement of building codes and standards. To this end, we issue building permits based on approvals of plans for residential and commercial projects. 


The Building Department ensures that certified inspectors:
1. Perform the required inspections in structural, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical trades
2. Schedule and track inspections for the zoning, landscaping, engineering, and fire departments
3. Issue certificates of occupancy
This division also oversees the issuance of waste hauler registrations for the community.
