 Background

 

The Village of Kenmore Building Department is comprised of a full-time Building Inspector, a part-time inspector, 4 part-time Code Enforcement Officers, and a part time Plumbing and Electrical Inspector. Together these individuals perform inspections required under the New York State Fire and Building Code and address complaints pertaining to violations of the New York State Building and Property Maintenance Code and the Kenmore Municipal Code.

 

The Village is ever mindful of the importance of maintaining properties in Kenmore's 100+ year old community. Daily foot inspections are made to assure that properties are kept up and in compliance with all applicable regulations. Notices are sent to advise owners and residents of any items needing to be addressed. Last year, the Building Department answered 1154 complaints and inspected an additional 1250 residential properties in Kenmore.

 

In addition to inspections, the Building Department is also responsible for issuing building permits, inspecting construction work, approving and issuing sump pump certificates, issuing Certificates of Compliance, Electrical and Plumbing permits, and sign permits.

 DRIVING SAFETY REMINDER:

 

Every day, distracted driving kills more than 9 people and injures more than 1,100.  According the the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it accounts for more than 1.5 million collisions/yr.

TALKING or TEXTING - Using a cell phone impairs driver reaction time to the same level as the legal limit for impaired driving.  You are 23 times more likely to crash if you're texting.

 

Please remember that any kind of multi-tasking should be avoided while driving.  Keep your attention on the road.  Eliminate driver distractions that keep your eyes off the road, whether it be personal maintenance, rubber-necking, texting (or using a hand-held phone), or adjusting your radio, iPod or GPS.    If you need to address any of these things, PULL OVER and stop in a safe place.
