Building Permit requirements have been developed by the State of Wisconsin to provide for the health and safety of all occupants within the building. The Town of Chase requires permits and inspections of all ongoing projects. Once a permit has been issued the Town of Chase Building Inspector will perform continuing inspections on the project to verify that the code requirements have been met.

When the project is completed, a final inspection will be made to verify that the work was done according to the Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling Codes. The purpose of the final inspection is to determine that the minimum life safety standards have been met. Failure to call for inspections or covering items prior to inspection may result in delays and additional fees. Please contact the Building Inspector if you have any questions.
