The City of Fond du Lac has adopted State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services’ Building, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Codes.

The Inspection Division is responsible for plan review, permit issuance and inspection of construction for compliance with building, electric, heating and plumbing codes. The Division also enforces City ordinances relating to property maintenance, zoning and floodplain regulations.

The municipal code includes chapters for zoning, building, plumbing, heating and electrical standards, as well as regulations for housing and property maintenance. The code is a searchable document.
