The Otsego County Code Enforcement Office is responsible for administration and enforcement of the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Construction Code (Uniform Code), the New York State Property Maintenance Code, and the New York State Energy Conservation Code (Energy Code).



The Otsego County Code Enforcement Office does not have jurisdiction for properties that are located in the following municipalities--these are physical locations and not mailing addresses:

Town of Milford

      Barbara Monroe @ 607-286-9314

City of Oneonta

In addition to the NYS Uniform Code and Energy Code, permits may also be required from a local official with your Town, Village, or City for local regulations such as zoning, special permits or variances.  Consult with you local municipal clerk for further information.  The Otsego County Code Enforcement Office will NOT issue its permits until it understands that any required local permits are in place.  In other words, a permit from the County may not be the only permit you may need.



The LOCAL LAW 2011     sets the terms and guidelines for the County Administraion and Enforcement of the New York State Codes.  The Otsego County fee schedule is currently being modified.
