Reports of some Village of Forestville property owners making improvements without building permits turned out to be just some misunderstandings. Village officials were told about five people doing work without the required permit. Any improvement project over $1,000 requires a building permit, which costs $25. So the Forestville Village Board sent letters to the property owners and received no responses. Village President Terry McNulty says the property owners were fined $50 and urged to explain what they were doing to the board.
McNulty says the village encourages people to improve their properties. But he recommends first checking out to see whether building permits for such project. You can learn more at https://www.villageofforestville.com/
