The Building Inspector for the Town of New Hartford is GERARD (Gerry) MONROE.

He comes to New Hartford having years of experience as a builder himself, therefore, he is extremely familar with all aspects of construction.

Gerry is the full time Building Inspector for the Town of New Hartford.  Gerry's role as Inspector requires him to be out of the office for a great portion of the day.  If you have a specific question - it is best to call ahead and set up an appointment (860-379-8830) to speak directly with him.

Permits (paperwork) can be completed any time during Town Hall office hours - Gerry does not need to be present for a permit to be completed.  However, NO WORK can be started without a SIGNED and APPROVED building permit.
Completing an application for a permit is not authorization to begin work.  You MUST wait for your permit to be approved prior to starting any work.

(Please use the links on the left side of this page in order to access permits)

The Building Official works with home owners, contractors, builders, and General Contractors for plan reviews, permits and on-site inspections to determine compliance with the Connecticut Building Code.

Before you decide to build or renovate, come in to Town Hall and this office will be happy to give you the help and information needed to comply with the building codes, zoning regulations, and inland/wetland regulations. This office cannot provide technical information or advice. It can however, steer you in a direction so that you can achieve your ultimate plan.

Laura White provides administrative assistance to the Building Inspector,  She will take messages and forward concerns to Jerry, but please note that she cannot answer questions specifically related to your project.

If you are not sure whether or not your project needs a building permit, PLEASE ASK!
