In 1972, the Michigan Construction Code Act was adopted and shortly
thereafter, in 1974, enforcement of municipal codes became mandatory. In
1980, several Lapeer County cities and townships founded the
Construction Code Authority under an inter-local agreement authorized
by the Urban Cooperation Act. This new entity provided code enforcement
services for the participating localities, reducing redundant offices and
increasing efficiency and consistency. In 1983, CCA reorganized as a
nonprofit corporation owned by the member municipalities and governed
by a five member board.  In 1998 the Construction Code Authority became
a governmental Entity.

Initial financing for CCA was provided by contributions from participating
municipalities, but operating costs are now met entirely through user fees.
User fees include permit fees paid by applicants, as well as services
contracted by various municipalities, such as zoning enforcement.

Each member municipality can choose from a variety of services:

  • Construction code inspections, including building, plumbing,
    mechanical, and electrical
  • Zoning ordinance administration
  • Housing/rental inspections -- Addressing Fire Prevention
  • General ordinance enforcement, such as blight, dangerous
    buildings, etc.
  • Joint Construction Board of Appeals
