Building a Better Garfield Begins Here . . .
The Code Enforcement Department of Garfield assures that new construction is in compliance with the City's land use zoning regulations, and that existing structures and properties in the City are kept safe and clean, in accordance with City ordinances.
To apply for a variance from City codes, follow the steps listed below, which begin with the submission of a building permit application (Residential or Commercial) at City Hall for review by the Code Enforcement Officer.
Residential Building Permit
The Residential Building Permit Application, with all supporting documents, will be reviewed by the Code Enforcement Officer. After the application is reviewed and approved, the permit will be issued.
Commercial Building Permit
The Commercial Building Permit Application, with all supporting documents, will be reviewed by the Code Enforcement Officer. Once the application is approved, a permit will be issued.
The Plumbing Permit Application details plumbing installation requirements and documents plumbing inspections performed by the City's Licensed Plumbing Inspector. The application must be approved before a Plumbing Permit can be issued.
The Fence Permit Application must be submitted for review by the Code Enforcement Officer. Upon approval, a Fence Permit may be issued for new or replacement fencing.
The Garfield Code Enforcement Officer serves a vital role in preserving the beauty and safety of residential and business districts in the City by verifying that structures and property meet City code requirements. Our current Code Enforcement Officer is Scott (Scooter) Wassman.
If you have a question about how your property may be affected by City codes in Garfield, schedule an appointment with Mr. Wassman by contacting City Hall.
