Terry Brackett, Deputy Code Enforcement Officer
Cherie Yattaw, Assessing/Planning Secretary
Scope of Services
The Code Officer is responsible for enforcing the Town’s ordinances, reviewing building permit applications, issuing building permits, attending meetings of the Planning Board and the Board of Appeals, and investigating complaints from citizens as well as from state and federal agencies.
Common questions include those regarding building permit applications, setback measurements for building projects and determining what trees can be cut on the shore line.
Shore front is something the Town is fortunate to have and enjoy. With this good fortune comes the responsibility to protect and preserve it for generations to come. The Town’s ordinances give guidance to help protect St. George’s fragile resources both on the shore and inland. A permit is needed for any project located in the 75' buffer zone of Shoreland Zoning.
It you are expanding your house, shed, porch, deck or any other structure that is on your property, then a permit is required. If you are putting up or building a temporary storage building a permit is required.
If you are fixing or repairing an existing structure and the total cost of the repair is under $5000, then no permit is required.
Do not forget your plumbing permit. Does your new addition have a bathroom, washing machine or a dishwasher? If it requires a drain to make the waste water disappear it probably requires a permit to make that magic happen. If you have questions call the Town Office or check with your plumber.
