A. Enforcement: The building code official shall inspect all buildings or structures during construction or alteration to see that the provisions of law are complied with and that construction is prosecuted safely. He shall cause all violations or suspected violations to be brought to the attention of all appropriate municipal authorities and shall enforce the provisions of this Chapter, and for that purpose he and his assistants shall have the right to enter any building, structure or premises at any reasonable time.
B. Records Open to the Public: The building code official shall keep, or cause to be kept, a record of his acts and doings, which records shall be open to public inspection.
C. Inspection Approvals: No work shall be done on any part of the building or structure beyond the point indicated in each successive inspection without first obtaining the written approval of the building code official. Such written approval shall be given only after an inspection shall have been made of each successive step in the construction. There shall be a final inspection and approval by the building code official, on all buildings when completed and ready for occupancy.
D. Posting of Permit: Work requiring a building permit shall not be commenced until the permit holder or his agent shall have posted an inspection record card in a conspicuous place on the front of the premises and in such position as to allow the building code official to make the required entries thereon regarding inspection of the work. This inspection card shall be maintained in such position by the permit holder until the certificate of occupancy has been issued.
E. Re-Inspection Fees: In the event the permittee, contractor or a subcontractor shall request an inspection and it is found by the building code official that the construction, erection or installation does not meet the requirements of this Chapter, or other applicable ordinances of the Village, and that an additional inspection or inspections shall be necessary, before any additional inspection shall be made, the permittee, contractor or subcontractor shall pay to the Development Services Department the fee for each such additional inspection. See Village Code, Title 5 Chapter 2, Section 7-5.
F. Stop Work Orders: In the event any construction, erection, alteration, installation, addition to, enlargement, conversion of or repair of any building or any part thereof or appurtenance thereto shall be done in violation of the provisions of this Chapter, or is being done or has been done without permit or permits required therefore by any of the provisions of this Chapter or any other provisions of this Village Code, or is being done or has been done contrary to the drawings or plans as approved by the Development Services Department, the building code official is hereby empowered and required forthwith to issue a stop order directing such construction, erection, alteration, installation, addition to, enlargement, conversion of or repair of any building or structure or any part thereof or appurtenance thereto, to cease immediately. If after a stop order has been issued, there is any reason to believe that further work is being done or has been done, the building code official may, among other remedies provided by law, petition the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, for an injunction as provided by law against the continuing of such work. (See 5-1-15 of this code for Violations and Stop Work Order.)
