County departments reopening for building construction

Sharing is caring!

On Thursday, May 7, 2020, the Livingston County Building Department, Environmental Health Department, and Drain Commissioner’s Office will be open to the public for services related to building construction.

This change is the result of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer allowing residential and commercial construction to resume, in addition to work traditionally performed outdoors. However, residents should continue doing their part in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This should be done by completing applications and asking questions by phone, email, or BS&A Online, when possible. This will limit the number of people in the building and reduce person-to-person contact.

People who enter the building will be required to wear a face mask or covering and maintain social distancing. Individuals who are sick will not be allowed in the building. Application forms should be completed prior to visiting, in order to minimize the number of people waiting in line. Residents are asked to be patient as some processes have changed due to COVID-19.

Longer wait times are anticipated to process permits and perform and schedule inspections. Contact information and links to permit application forms for each department can be found below. Every effort should be made to conduct business by phone, email, or website.
