Building Inspection

About the Department

Through building code enforcement, we're making a difference in our community. The primary purpose of the Building Inspection Department is to ensure safe minimum levels of construction through enforcement of the Kentucky Building Code and the Kentucky Residential Code. This is closely followed by the enforcement of the Georgetown and Scott County Zoning Ordinance, which provides for orderly growth of our community.
