There are mandatory inspection on accessory buildings as well; however, these will be determined based on the type of construction at the time that the permit is issued by the Planning & Development Office. This office is also responsible for ensuring that structures have been permitted when complaints are filed. The Codes Enforcement Officer handles nuisance complaints and non-construction related code violations or complaints. Another responsibility for this office is maintenance of the County buildings outside of LaFayette and special projects as they are assigned.
