Peosta City Building Code

Beginning January 1, 2011 the City of Peosta implemented a Building Code requiring permits for any building, electrical, mechanical or plumbing work.

These permits must be obtained before starting any work.  This includes new construction, wood decks, roofs, additions, garages, structural repairs; i.e. foundations, walls, headers, beams, joists and rafters and interior remodeling involving drywall, moving/building of walls and doors etc.  This list is not all inclusive, if you have questions, please contact City Hall during regular business hours at (563)556-8755.

Inspections are required for all building, electrical, plumbing and mechanical work performed.  Peosta has contracted with ECIA (East Central Intergovernmental Association) to perform these inspections.  All work must comply with the 2012 IRC and 2017 NEC.  Ordinances adopting the building code are in the Ordinance section of the website.
