******************************************************************

In addition to the NYS Uniform Code and Energy Code, permits may also be required from a local official with your Town, Village, or City for local regulations such as zoning, special permits or variances.  Consult with you local municipal clerk for further information.  The Otsego County Code Enforcement Office will NOT issue its permits until it understands that any required local permits are in place.  In other words, a permit from the County may not be the only permit you may need.
