Planning & Inspections

The Planning & Inspections Department is responsible for maintaining Harrington’s character and safety now and into the future. This is done through overall city planning and on an individual property level through building permits and code enforcement.

The City of Harrington employs a full time Code Enforcement Officer that in addition to code enforcement responsibilities, also receives building permit applications and provides minor building permit inspections. Major building inspections are conducted by the Building Code Inspector, a contractor from Remington, Vernick, & Beach Engineers.

The City of Harrington has adopted the 2012 International Building, Residential, and Property Maintenance Codes as the building and maintenance standards for the City.
