Public Act 203 of 1972, known as the Single State Construction Code Act was adopted by the State of Michigan to provide rules to govern the construction and use of all buildings and structures, including land area incidental to said buildings and structures within the State. Montrose Township has elected to adopt and enforce the Michigan and Residential Building codes within its jurisdiction to insure
adequate protection to the health, safety, and welfare of the public.
In addition to the enforcement of the Building Codes by the reviewing of plans, the issuance of building and zoning permits, and making necessary inspections, the Building Department also has the responsibility of enforcing all Township Ordinances, investigates complaints, and coordinates activities with both the Planning Commission and Board of Appeals.
A property owner should know that failure to obtain a building permit and get the required inspections could cause your insurance carrier not to cover the work completed without such permit and inspections. Problems could also develop when the property is transferred.
