Building Inspections

The Building Division is responsible for the issuance of permits based on the current requirements of the building code as adopted by the City of Tifton.  We review all construction plans for compliance with the building codes and any City Ordinance that may apply.  We at the Building Department have the duty and responsibility to the citizens of this City to  ensure that any new construction, remodel, or addition completed at a property, is in compliance with all applicable building codes.  We also make sure that all life safety & fire codes are adhered to.  The state also charges us with the responsibility to see that all rules associated with the Americans with Disabilities Acts are followed in order to afford all citizens with equal access to business and housing.  The Building Division strives to provide the proper information and efficient process to give the customer the service they deserve in a timely manner.

Please be aware that the online code of ordinances may not reflect recent updates. For the most current version of our code of ordinances please contact our office.
