are trained and experienced in their professional fields
In order for every section in the Village to have a high
standard of construction or rehabilitation work, the Building
Department issues what is termed a building permit. This
permit is a safeguard to the community that the work being
done is in conformance with zoning, health, fire, and safety
standards as authorized under the Village of Worth.
A permit is necessary for the protection of the individual
performing the job, for the property owner, and for the Village.
A safe, general guide to follow is that permits are required
in all cases of new construction. With respect to existing
buildings, permits are required in instances where the proposed
work involves structural changes, light and ventilation,
exits, size of rooms, fire-safety requirements, sanitary
facilities or any other work that may result in changes to
the heights, area, capacity, use or occupancy of a building.
