The village of Downsville had no way to issue a building permit when it required one from contractors doing work on renovations at Downsville Charter School.
At their meeting on July 14, the Downsville Board of Aldermen approved a resolution to contract with the Institute for Building Safety and Technology to provide building inspection services.
