The Construction Department is here to assist Township residents when they are making any construction changes to their houses.  Our office has jurisdiction over building, plumbing, electric and fire changes or improvements.  The department's main goal is to ensure that any and all work is code compliant and that proper techniques and procedures are followed for your safety.
