Please be advised: If caught building without a permit, the Town Board has adopted a legalization fee of $1000 plus the original permit fees. This fee is also in effect for any construction that was not filed prior to the adoption of this fee. This includes finished basements, decks, pools, etc. An already-built shed is $500 plus the original permit fees.
If changes to a building structure were made illegally, even if the work was done by a prior owner, you will be required to legalize the structure before you may obtain a certificate of occupancy or apply for permits for other work to the structure. This may require your producing architectural plans or other information to proceed to legalize changes to a structure.
