Mr. Zampolin is in the office Monday – Friday from 7am to 11am. Before planning a trip to his office to see him, please call first as he may be out on inspections. Please feel free to leave a message on his answering machine and he will promptly return your call and answer any questions you have regarding building permits and construction questions.

Any activity on a flood plain property requires a permit including ground and tree work.
