Building Department Consultants
The Town of Beaux Arts Village contracts with several professional consultants to staff our Building Department. Any and all hours that they work are billed to the Town and are chargeable to the specific project they are reviewing, inspecting, etc. Property owners will be billed for the charges associated with these hours based on the Town's current Fee Schedule.
If you obtain (or already have) a permit for your project, the charges will be billed as part of the fees for your permit. If, for some reason, you do not need a permit or choose not to move forward with a project, the charges will be billed to you separately.

Staff at KCG also enforce the Town's Building and Zoning Codes when a violation is observed and on a complaint basis.
