Policy and Procedures
Policy and Procedures for Expiring Permits:

When a permit expires, a call is made to the permit holder reminding them their permit is still open and needs to be completed within the next month if possible.  If there is no response from the initial phone call, a letter is sent to the permit holder explaining the situation and asking them to contact the Building Department to update them on the project.  If the project is not finished within the month, the permit holder is asked to renew the permit for another year.

If no progress has been made on the project, the Building Inspector makes a commendation if the permit should be cancelled or not.

This policy applies to all permits, including plumbing, mechanical, electrical and building. A copy of this policy will accompany all correspondence.

A record of all expired permits are kept in an excel spreadsheet listing all contact including dates and responses.

Policy and Procedure for Expiring Temporary Certificate of Occupancy:

A letter will be sent when a temporary permit expires requesting that a final inspection must be made, and approved, or written notice sent to the building department with request for a 30 day extension. A copy of this policy will accompany all correspondence.

Policy concerning Occupying without Final Approval:

A letter will be sent stating they are illegally occupying the structure. They will be given 10 days to either final the project or to vacate the structure. At the end of 10 days if no action has been taken, a citation through the Zoning Enforcement Office is to be issued. A copy of this policy will accompany all correspondence.

This policy was approved at a regular board meeting held at the Waterloo Township Hall located on Mt. Hope Rd. , Munith, Michigan , on September 24, 2019.
