The Building Official, Randy Sapelak, who reviews building permit plans and applications, is also the full-time building inspector and serves as the Planning and Zoning Administrator. The Electrical and Plumbing/Heating inspectors are both part-time.
This department is the first contact people have when they need to go through site plan review, rezoning review, variance requests, lot splits, special use permits and zoning ordinance enforcement issues such as site plan compliance, signage, utility structures and decks. Any questions regarding planning and zoning should be directed to Building Official Randy Sapelak at email@example.com or by calling the Village office at (248) 684-1515.
The Village also retains a planning consultant through Giffels Webster. They assist with review and recommendations at Planning Commission meetings.
