Berkley Building Department Reopens Construction Activities Under the Restrictions Outlined in the Governor's Executive Order 2020-70

Hello Home Owners and Contractors,

Let us start off by saying thank you for your patience and understanding during this trying time.  We hope that you and your families are all well.

Effective May 7, 2020, construction activities are permitted to resume, under the restrictions outlined in Executive Order 2020-70. City Hall remains closed to the public and city staff is operating in a limited capacity, working remotely from home as feasible. Inspectors will not be available in City Hall.

In order to ensure all construction activities are safe and operating in accordance with the Executive Order, the City of Berkley is requiring homeowners or contractors to submit a Personal Protection Agreement prior to permits issued or inspections scheduled.  Tradesmen and/or laborers must also submit the Personal Protection Agreement if they are not sub-contractors on a large scale project. If there is one general contractor overseeing all sub-contractors and taking responsibility for the entire site, that person may sign the Agreement for the subject property.
