Code Enforcement Officer

Madison's Code Enforcement Officer is Susan Hathaway.  Susan works closely with the Planning Board on matters related to land use, building permits, shoreland zoning and commercial ordinances.  The Code Enforcement Officer has hours at the Town Office on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8am to 4pm. 

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 State regularly updates the MUBEC statute so please contact Code Enforcement before starting a project.
