County Zoning Certificates
Albany County is currently looking at changing our “zoning certificate” process and I was wondering if you would entertain a quick question about your permit process. Currently, Albany County requires that a zoning certificate for all buildings be approved and signed by the Board of County Commissioners. Albany County has not adopted building codes so we require only the zoning certificate.
My question is whether your County requires Board approval for all zoning certificates/building permits (specifically for allowed uses)or has the Board delegated authority to your department to approve these permits?
