The City helps ensure the construction of safe building and protects community character through zoning and building code regulations. The Building Official administers these regulations through permits and inspections. The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry has implemented a new construction contractor registration pilot project required under Minnesota Statute § 181.723 as amended (Minnesota Laws, Chapter 295). City inspectors will inspect a project several times during the course of construction for things such as footings, framing, insulation, rough-in and final electrical, plumbing, mechanical work, and final inspection.
