§ 151.050  BUILDING PERMITS.
   (A)   A building permit shall be required for all construction within the village. No building permit shall be issued by the village unless a completed application has been received, examined and approved by the Zoning Officer. Any building permit issued in conflict with the provisions of this chapter shall be null and void.
   (B)   It shall be the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that the application is complete and to submit surveys, floor plans, performance standards or other documents as may be deemed necessary by the Zoning Officer to complete his or her examination of the application.
   (C)   Upon the issuance of a building permit, the applicant must initiate construction within six months, and shall thereafter complete construction within 18 months from the construction inception date. The Village Board may, in its sole discretion, extend the above initiation date and/or completion date for a period of time not to exceed six months, but only upon a showing of good cause. In the event that the applicant or his or her designated agent has not initiated construction within six months, and no extension of time has been allowed, then the building permit shall expire, and immediately become null and void. Upon the expiration of the building permit, all fees paid by the applicant shall be forfeited. In the event that the applicant or his or her designated agent has not completed construction as required herein and no extension of time has been allowed, then a penalty of $50 per day shall be imposed upon the applicant.
