The Department of Building and Structural Safety issues all construction related permits and oversees all new building projects as well as all demolition in the city. Our mission is to effectively administer the State of Michigan building codes and local ordinances to ensure public health, safety, and welfare.
We will endeavor to provide professional services to our customers that will encourage the selection of Inkster as the preferred location to live, work, and invest - while striving to preserve and promote the quality of life in our neighborhoods, and a diverse vitality in our business community.
Working under the direction of the Community Development Director, The Inkster Code Enforcement Division is charged with protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the community through enforcement of the Inkster City Ordinance. Working in conjunction with building and code officials, the ordinance officers enforce property maintenance codes as well as the Dangerous Buildings Ordinance and elements of the Michigan Building Codes.
