The Town of Dryden requires fees for administering the NYS Building Code, as well as the town’s local laws and ordinances. These laws are enforced by two Code Enforcement Officers as well as the Director of Planning within the town’s Planning Department. The Planning Department also assists the town’s boards and applicants through the permit review process when Site Plan Review, Subdivision, and Special Use Permits are required. This process also requires the town to keep and maintain records in accordance with NYS laws.
