New Online Building Permit Software http://www.cheshirect.org/news/new-online-building-permit-software/ 2018-01-31T10:45:23 Arnett Talbot http://www.cheshirect.org/news/new-online-building-permit-software/ The Town of Cheshire is pleased to announce our new Online Permitting Process for Building Permits!

 

Beginning February 1, 2018, applications for all forms of Building Permits will be submitted online by logging in to https://cheshirect.viewpointcloud.com/

 

Once the necessary application and payment has been completed and submitted electronically, the application will be processed by the Building Official and all other relevant departments.  The applicant will be able to track the status of the application online throughout the process, and will receive timely requests for missing or additional information.  Upon completion of the project and submission of all required paperwork and information, a Certificate of Occupancy (COs) can be downloaded electronically by the applicant.

 

This program is designed to simplify the building permitting process for homeowners and contractors.  It also offers the convenience of submitting documents electronically rather than making a trip, or multiple trips, to Town offices.  It is expected to reduce the processing time to issue permits and COs.

 

Applicants who do not have access to a computer may come to the Building Official’s office to apply on the two terminals that are provided to the public for this purpose and can pay by check or cash if they choose; there is a minimal fee for electronic payments.  The Building staff will be available for questions and assistance as needed.

 

For more information, contact the Building Official’s office at 203-271-6640.

Mailbox snow policy http://www.cheshirect.org/news/mailbox-snow-policy/ 2018-01-08T14:03:14 Arnett Talbot http://www.cheshirect.org/news/mailbox-snow-policy/

TOWN COUNCIL POLICY RESOLUTION

 

WHEREAS, during the winter months, on occasion, mailboxes become damaged or broken as a result of snow being thrown against them by Town and State snow plows during snow removal, and,

 

WHEREAS, on occasion mailboxes are damaged by being actually struck by Town snow plows,

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Cheshire Town Council established the following policy concerning mailboxes:

 

          A. Residents and taxpayers are advised of the importance of the proper placement and anchoring of their mailboxes so that damage to the boxes does not result from winter snow removal operations.

 

          B. All mailboxes should be securely fastened to a sturdy post, which is sufficiently anchored in the ground to resist the impact of plowed snow.

 

          C. The mailbox should be at least 12" behind the face of the curb or edge of pavement to prevent contact by the plow itself, and should be in conformance with postal regulations.

 

          D. In the event a mailbox is actually struck by a Town snowplow, and it meets the above policy guidelines, the Town will:   

                 Repair the damage, if possible; OR

                 Replace the damaged components with a standard metal mailbox (approximate

size 6.5”w x 19”l x 8.5” h) and a 4” x 4” wood post; OR 

                Reimburse up to $200 for materials/labor upon submission of valid receipts.

 

          E.  Mailbox damage must be reported to the Public Works Department within 48 hours of plowing cessation.

 

          F.  The Director of Public Works, or his designee, will make a decision regarding disputes over responsibility for damaged mailboxes.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the above resolution, which was originally adopted at Cheshire, Connecticut on December 18, 1978, in order to establish a clear policy concerning mailboxes and to create a public awareness of general Town policy, is revised on December 9, 2014.

 

ADOPTED BY TOWN COUNCIL DECEMBER 9, 2014
