The Fulton County Commissioners have announced the launch date for their local building inspection department. In past years, all building inspections in FultonCounty had to be handled through the state of Ohio. That service will now be initiated locally, with the inspections to be performed by the WoodCounty inspection office. The transition will occur on July 1st of this year, when a building department will be established in FultonCounty. This office will enforce inspections and permitting for buildings, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire sprinklers, and fire alarms. The fees of the permits will cover the cost of contracting with WoodCounty, which was approved by the Fulton County Commissioners on May 1st.
Beginning July 1st, inspection contacts should be made through WoodCounty, at 1-419-354-9190. Their hours will be Monday through Friday from 8am till 4pm. WoodCounty is also working with the villages of Archbold, Delta, Swanton and Wauseon to secure similar arrangements.
