"It is the object of the Mahoning County Building Inspection department to place the public’s welfare above all other interest and recognize that the chief function of government is to serve the best interest of all the people. The protection of life, health and property is a solemn responsibility of the highest order.
We will demonstrate integrity, honesty and fairness in all transactions and constantly strive for excellence in all matters of ethical conduct. Maintain professional competence in all areas of employment responsibility and encourage the same in associates at all levels.
Recognize the continuing need for developing improved safety standards for the protection of life, health and property, and acknowledge a professional obligation to contribute time and expertise in the development of such improvements. Public safety for all current and future occupants of Mahoning County is our priority."
What we do:
We are a State certified building department and perform over 8,000 commercial and residential inspections each year. All inspections are performed by our State certified inspectors.
This department is the governing agency on building construction and use. We have protected county residents since 1957 by providing a vital service to the owners and occupants of Mahoning County. We inspect all new, remodeled and existing buildings and ensure they are constructed and used in accordance with the State of Ohio mandated codes. The current building codes for commercial and residential construction are: Ohio Building Code 2007 and 2006 Residential code of Ohio.
The Building Inspection Department is fully funded by permit and inspection fees, architect reviews fees and administrative fees.
