The Tallapoosa County Commission created the Tallapoosa County Building Department in an effort to provide protection for the health, safety and welfare of the general public in relation to the use and occupancy of structures by enforcement of adopted Building Codes, and to also protect property owners from abuse by unlicensed Contractors and sub-contractors by enforcement of Contractor Licensing Laws.
The Building Department is responsible for issuing permits for both residential and commercial construction, which includes new construction, additions, alterations or remodeling of existing structures and utility connections for manufactured homes. In addition the department assures the enforcement of the Building, Plumbing, Electrical and Mechanical codes through inspections by the County Building Inspector.
It is the goal of the Tallapoosa County Building Department to provide prompt, courteous, and impartial service to the citizens and constructions industry of Tallapoosa County. Every attempt will be made to carry out the duties of the department in a professional manner in order to serve and protect the public.
