Amanda's Law, regarding carbon monoxide alarms, takes effect on February 22, 2010.
Many questions are asked concerning when a building permit is required. All persons proposing to construct, erect, relocate, alter, repair, extend, remove, demolish, or structurally change any building, structure or portion thereof, shall apply to the Building Inspector for a building permit on the appropriate form. Included also are: swimming pools, (above and in-ground), blacktop driveways (new or resurfaced), fences, sheds, siding and roofing. Signs are regulated by the Town's Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance. Please contact the Building Department if you have any questions concerning the law.
Inflatable Pools Need Fencing
New York State Department of State, Codes division has stated that above ground inflatable pools require fencing.
Above ground or inflatable pools that are less than 48 inches tall must be fenced in to prevent children from climbing over the sides. Fencing around the pool must be 48 inches high with a latching gate. Gates must swing outwards, away from the pool, and have a self latching device located on the pool side of the gate. This is a safety issue that is the responsibility of the property owner.
All pools require a permit issued by the Building Department.
