LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Official offer spring construction reminder


Dear Editor,

With the beginning of spring, many residents will begin home repair projects. With this in mind residents should be aware that several projects require permits from their city’s Building Department. The projects range fences, new furnaces, air conditioning units, water heaters, decks, patio doors, garages, sheds, etc. All new construction projects also require permits.

Home owners and business owners must make sure those doing the work are licensed for installation projects and properly insured for construction projects, as required by law. The responsibility to know the status of the contractor’s background and qualifications is up to the property owner.

If you have questions on permit requirements or if the individual doing the work is qualified, feel free to contact the city’s Building Department, which also has to monitor any unlawful activities in the construction trades.

Before you pay the final bill, be sure that the city inspector has had an opportunity to review and inspect the final project to ensure code compliance with local rules and regulations.

For more information in Sidney, call 254-5300; in Potter, call (308) 879-4332.
