ELECTRICIANS NOTE:  as of Friday, April 28, 2023, Code Enforcement is currently without a City Electrical Inspector.  We ask that you temporarily request inspections (energizing, final) for current permits issued, with Dennis Blair, Chief Electrical Inspector with the State of Vermont Dept. of Public Safety.  Please contact him via email or cell phone to schedule inspections:

Dennis Blair
Vt Division of Fire Safety
Chief Electrical Inspector
Electrical Licensing Board
Williston Regional Office
380 Hurricane Ln, Suite 101
Williston, VT   05495
Cell (802) 760-7408
Fax (802)  879-2312

Temporarily, for new electrical permitting (single family, owner occupied ONLY) here in Barre City, please complete the newly updated City of Barre Electrical Application Form.  For all others (rented single family homes, duplexes, etc.), please use the State of Vermont Electrical Permit Application using their on-line Portal at PERMIT FORM.

As soon as we have an answer on our Electrical Inspector position, we will revise the website accordingly.


NOTE:  When calculating the fees for your permit applications, please use the fee schedules within each application type, and follow the instructions.  Please contact MICHELLE to verify the correct fees due.

Time of Sale Inspections:

In an effort to help our property owners, the City's Code Enforcement Services has instituted a new program - they are offering a Time of Sale Inspection for buyers and sellers of all types of residential properties (single family, duplex, multi-family, etc.).  This is not a mandatory inspection, but is offered for your benefit and at your request.

The Inspection has a fee associated with it, and the request must be made with the Fire Marshal's office AT LEAST 15 DAYS IN ADVANCE of your need.The REQUEST FORM can be downloaded here, or can be picked up in City Hall at the Zoning and Assessing Office.  All requests must be dropped off at the Zoning and Assessing Office with the fee in the form of cash, check made out to "City of Barre, VT", or online payment using the Xpress Pay Portal (see above) at which point it will be forwarded to the Fire Marshal for review and scheduling.  Please ensure a good phone number is listed on this form so that contact can be readily made.
