  • Adopting model codes and standards
  • Checking building plans for compliance with code requirements
  • Inspecting the construction, alteration, moving, demolition, repair, and use of buildings and structures
  • Issuing contractor registrations and required permits
  • Maintaining department records
  • Performing inspections during construction
  • Reinforcing city ordinances
