Building Inspection

To apply for a building permit or for building permit inquiries please contact

Building Inspector


Cell Phone: (262) 424-6957


The building inspector performs all inspections:  structural, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC, including commercial properties.  If you are planning on doing any work on your home, please contact Lee beforehand to make sure you are getting the proper permits.  Contact him directly with questions, for general information, or to set an appointment.  Lee also holds regular office hours at the Rochester Village Hall on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Effective January 2, 2018, all municipalities are required to be in compliance with State of Wisconsin permit requirements for new one & two family home construction. Permit applications for this type of construction will need to be completed online by following this link:

DSPS Online Building Permit System

Although this is not a requirement for 2017, we are implementing this process to allow for both the Building Inspector and permit applicants to get used to this new system.

Should you have any questions regarding the application process, please feel free to contact the Building Inspector directly at 262-424-6957.

Thank you!
