    On April 19, 2004, Borough Council enacted Ordinance #400 electing to administer and enforce the provisions of the Pennsylvania Construction Code, Act #45 of 1999, and adopted the Uniform Construction Code (UCC) as the Borough’s Municipal Building Code.

    The purpose of the UCC is to provide uniform standards for builders, greater protection for the owners, occupants, and the general public. It will ensure safe, cost efficient, modern construction standards throughout Pennsylvania by governing the construction, repair, and new occupancy of all structures in Pennsylvania.

    The impact on local residents planning a building project will be minimal since the Borough already has a building code inspector in place.

    An owner or authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a residential building or erect, install enlarge, alter, repair, remove, construct, or replace an electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system regulated by the UCC shall first apply to the building code official and obtain the required permit.

    • Uncovered Decks less than 30" Above Grade  (Zoning Permit)
    • Swimming Pool Building Permit Rate 
    • Furnace Building Permit Rate
