The City is committed to promoting an environment in which our citizens can live in and visit safe, accessible and healthy structures. 

Currently, the City contracts with Agricultural Engineering Associates, Inc. for building inspection services on residential and commercial structures.

The Frontenac Fire Department is responsible for Fire Code Inspections on those buildings which contain large numbers of people. 

The City has undergone significant changes to building codes in the past few years. Currently, all new construction must meet city codes and zoning. Permits and inspections are required on all new, permanent structures, and on major remodels which include changing the outside dimensions of a permanent structure, or major changes to the plumbing, electrical or mechanical systems. Due to staffing issues, fences or temporary structures do not require inspection or permitting. The owner or contractor is still responsible for meeting all applicable codes, as well as setback requirements.

Upon application for a building permit, the owner or contractor will meet with the engineers to determine the extent of the project, the number of inspections required, and anticipated fees. 

Permit fees are charged separately by the city and are in the attached document, set by ordinance.
