The Kochville Township Code of Ordinances can be found online for your convenience.

To enforce building codes fairly and efficiently, Kochville Township retains a building inspector with extensive training who is registered with the State Construction Code Commission and the Department of Labor. The building inspector issues building permits and inspects construction sites in accordance with the 2015 edition of the Michigan Building Code, the 2015 Michigan Residential Code, and oversees the electrical inspector and the plumbing and mechanical inspector.

The building inspector must be prepared to issue “stop work” orders and seek circuit court injunctions to achieve compliance with the codes.

Farm buildings for legitimate agricultural use are exempt from permitting and enforcement, but still must meet zoning setbacks. Contact the Zoning Administrator for more information.
