The Department of Building & Safety is the primary agency for maintaining and improving the appearance and condition of neighborhoods and business districts. Our purpose is to preserve the viability and stability of the business and residential districts and to prevent deterioration and blighting influences within the community. We also advocate for Romulus residents by assisting property owners when interacting with building contractors and providing timely and accurate information. With five fulltime inspectors and four clerical employees, the Department of Building & Safety is entrusted with overseeing the construction, maintenance, alteration and repair of all buildings and other structures located on private property. The fields where permits are issued and inspections performed include:

Heating/Cooling - Plumbing - Electrical - Building - Paving - Carpentry - Masonry - Signs - Fences

We also perform occupancy and re-occupancy inspections on all residential, commercial and industrial buildings to ensure safety and compliance with applicable codes and ordinances.

Codes and ordinances are designed to enhance the quality of life for Romulus residents and protect them from substandard or unsafe construction.
