| Each year, the Town of Haverstraw's Building Department receives hundreds of calls from both new homeowners and long-time residents interested in building a new house or adding to an existing one as well as those wishing to do commercial construction and alterations including change in occupancies. We welcome these calls and are glad to help make the building permit and certificate of occupancy (C.O.) process as quick and simple as possible.
Building permits and C.O.'s are your assurance and ours, that your house and the buildings and stores you visit in the Town of Haverstraw meet the building codes for structural soundness and fire safety.
In order to help you further understand what kinds of construction and repairs require building permits and C.O.'s, we are publishing this guide. I think it will help answer most of your questions but if anything is unclear, please feel free to call the Building Department at (845) 429-2200.
Questions about Fire Permits, Burning Permits, Fire Inspections or Sprinkler Systems? Please contact the Town of Haverstraw Fire Safety Inspector, Frederick J. Viohl At (845) 429-2200.
