Due to concerns about today’s current health conditions and to ensure the health and safety of the public and our employees, we have shut down our offices to the general public. Zoning and Construction permits are still required. See below.
We will have our office staffed to handle your concerns and permitting issues, and for the time being, are inspecting new construction and outside work, such as decks, water / sewer, pools, etc. Inspecting existing homes and work, such as water heaters, HVAC systems, re-wiring, re-piping and the like will be postponed to a later date. (30 days after State of Emergency is lifted)
We ask that for the coming weeks until this issue is resolved, phone use, US mail and email are to be used to continue construction office business.
All construction forms are on our website, Twpoceannj.gov/forms, and may be sent to either Construction.firstname.lastname@example.org or Construction@twpoceannj.gov .
