Building & Code Services


A staff of ten individuals is assigned to the division of Building & Code Services. These individuals process, review, and issue all building permits (improvement location permits—or ILPs) required in Clay Township. The staff also performs all building inspections, in addition to responding to reported zoning violations. The "Inspector on Call" (IOC) desk was established to continue our efforts at providing professional and timely customer service to the citizens of Clay Township and to the patrons of our division. It is staffed by a building inspector daily, between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., to maximize efficient plan review, respond to questions posed by a visitor to our office or question by telephone, and to help resolve other building and zoning code issues and questions which arise. The Inspector on Call can be reached at: (317) 571-2481.

Building inspectors are required to be certified in all aspects of construction (structural, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC). Inspectors maintain their certifications through tests sanctioned by the International Code Council (ICC). The Code Enforcement staff are also required to be certified.
