MADISON – Department of Commerce (Commerce) Secretary Mary P. Burke today announced that Commerce has delegated the Village of Fontana, Walworth County, the authority to provide limited plan review services as well as conduct inspections of those commercial buildings reviewed by the municipality.

“The Village of Fontana joins over 160 other state municipalities that have been delegated the authority to provide specified plan review services and conduct inspections on behalf of Commerce,” Burke said. “This gives municipalities the opportunity to provide services on behalf of the state as well as their own enforcement activities on projects within the scope of their delegated authority. Typically municipalities can provide more immediate service to local projects.”

Under agent delegation agreement, Barney Brugger will be responsible for inspections and plan reviews for the Village of Fontana.

Municipalities seeking further information regarding the commercial building agent program should contact Henry Kosaryzcki, Commerce, at 608/212-0138. Owners seeking submittal information to the scope of their projects can contact the Village of Fontana or Henry Kosarzycki.
