Code Enforcement


 In an effort to continue to practice social distancing whenever possible, the Otsego County Code Enforcement Office asks that any applications and materials be submitted either electronically through email, or be faxed, or be sent to us by U.S. mail whenever possible.

 The office will be open for drop-off of large materials or payments only. A full review of your application will be performed in the order it was received; and, we will contact you by phone or email to discuss any matters as needed.

 If you have any general questions or concerns, please call or write us an email.

 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 your 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.

Please note-

  • All permit applications involve plan review.
  • Permits are generally issued within 7 -10 business days after your application is deemed complete.
