Having Work Done Around Your House?

Contractors are responsible for the removal of any construction material that they remove from your home, including fencing material. Homeowners doing their own work should call our refuse collection company Interstate Waste Services at 201-768-5407 to find out what they will pick up and when and if there is an additional charge.

Garage Sale Permits

There is a fee of $10.00 for garage sale permits and they will be issued to any one address only four times during any calendar year. No such permit shall be issued for more than two consecutive days. Call Julia Martino the Building Department Technical Assistant at 201-767-3330 Ext. 213 or visit the building department for this permit or download these forms and others forms left hand column of this page.

Replacing an appliance? Get a permit.

It is required by law that a permit be taken out before a hot water heater or furnace is replaced. Many people complain about this and others try to avoid this, but there is a good reason for this requirement. After installation/replacement, an inspector will be sent to see if it has been properly installed. It seems like it’s easy, but there are several items in the installation phase that could cause injury, fire or death (carbon monoxide poisoning) if not properly installed. Operating these appliances without obtaining a permit and being properly inspected will result in a $250.00 fine.

Building a Deck?

If you are building a deck, building code requirements can be found on the left hand column of this page.

Selling Your Home?

The law requires a Certificate of Continued Occupancy if you are selling your home, issued by the Building Department twenty days before your closing. You can obtain forms on-line or call the building department at 201-767-3330 ext. 213 for further information.
