About the Code Enforcement Office

The Code Enforcement Office is responsible for encouraging safe and sound development within the residential, commercial and industrial growth areas. The department along with the Planning Board assists in the development, maintenance, and enactment of the Town’s plans for development. The Code Enforcement Officer provides assistance with all aspects of development and building. It is the goal of this office to guide people through the maze of federal, state and local rules and regulations in a timely manner.

Please keep in mind when undertaking a project, call us for property setbacks and whatever permitting may be necessary. If the property permitting and setbacks are not met the outcome could cost a lot more than a phone call…

Always remember when working in or around the Shoreland area additional approval and permits may be needed through the Department of Environmental Protection or the Army Corp of Engineers. Check with the CEO or local DEP Office for guidance.

Also, before a new or renovated structure can be occupied a Certificate of Occupancy must be issued by the Hermon Code Enforcement Officer.
