The Building Department ensures that all new buildings and renovations meet applicable building codes and local Kenneth City ordinances. Plans are reviewed by experts in different fields before any building permit is issued. Construction sites are inspected regularly during the building process, and a thorough inspection is made before a Certificate of Occupancy is granted.
The Town's Building Department is open from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, and can be reached at (727) 498-8953.
