Building Inspection

When you think of the Building Inspection and Code Enforcement Department you probably think permits, right? Issuing permits and performing inspections, while at the center of our department, is definitely not all we do. Our inspectors enforce the State of Wisconsin Building Code Statues and city ordinances. They are involved in projects such as:
  • Additions
  • All electrical changes
  • Decks
  • New construction
  • Pools
  • Remodeling
  • Replacements of HVAC equipment, water heaters and softeners
Building maintenance for all city buildings also falls under our umbrella, including all mechanical and aesthetic needs. We are the enforcement arm of many City of Sun Prairie Ordinances, including long grass and weeds, snow and ice removal, and health and safety concerns. We also issue sign permits, handle property addressing and verify Conditions of Approval for most commercial improvements. And when the snow flies and you see the sidewalks at the city buildings being shoveled, that is us too!
