Code Enforcement Officer

Madison's Code Enforcement Officer is Robert Dunphy.  Bob works closely with the Planning Board on matters related to land use, building permits, shoreland zoing and commercial ordinances.  The Code Enforcement Officer has hours at the Town Office on Mondays and Thursdays from 8AM to 12PM.

New updates to the Maine Uniform Building & Energy Code (MUBEC) apply to Maine towns that have a population of 4,000 or more.  This causes some confusion regarding what kind of project requires a building permit.  The latest update and the process for obtaining a permit can be found here.
