The second priority of the Community Development Department is to regulate and enforce both the Building Codes and Municipal Ordinances adopted by the city. The Building Code is comprised of four major areas:
- Building Structure
Community Development currently focuses on building structure inspections, with Tennessee Valley Electric Cooperative performing electrical inspections, and the city’s utility department performing mechanical and plumbing inspections on a limited basis, primarily for new utility installations. The City of Savannah’s inspection capabilities include having three Building Inspectors certified with the State of Tennessee.
