Procedures for Electrical Permit Applications
Electrical Permit Applications must be filled out completely and forwarded along with payment to the Township Administrative Office. The permit will be reviewed by the Electrical Inspector. If the work is being performed by an electrical contractor, all licenses must be included with the application. If the application is mailed, a receipt and a copy of the permit will be returned by mail. Applications also may be printed and carried into the office or picked up and processed the same day.
No person shall equip a building with electrical conductors or equipment or make an alteration of, change in, or addition to, electrical conductors or equipment without receiving a permit to do the work described. (The code refers to Act 217 of 1956 for certain exemptions for unregulated electrical work.) Tittabawassee Township has also adopted the 2008 State Electrical Code in its entirety.
To obtain electrical permits, an applicant shall be an electrical contractor or specialty contractor licensed by a municipality or by the State Electrical Administrative Board OR a homeowner performing electrical work in a single family home and accompanying outbuildings owned and occupied, or to be occupied, by the person performing the installation. No work should be performed until the permit is issued.
Any questions regarding electrical permits should be directed to the electrical inspector at (989)233-7036.
