Building Commissioner

Welcome to the North Manchester Building Commissioner's office.

Mr. Shumaker works only part-time as Building Commissioner and has no regular office hours in Town Hall. He works out of the Clerk's Office. The Clerk's Office staff will assist you with filing for a building permit, but all questions about zoning, variances, plot plans, setbacks, signage, building codes, the need for a building permit, demolition ordinance, demolition permit, unsafe building ordinance,  etc., should be addressed to Mr. Shumaker.

North Manchester has a Master Plan for building and development of the community. You are invited to familiarize yourself with the building codes. Copies of the Master Plan may be reviewed or purchased at the Clerk's Office.

Building permits are necessary whether you want to build a new home or add to and improve your present home or business. Building permits may be applied for at the Clerk's Office. Generally speaking, a fee of $.03 per square foot of new building construction will be charged, with a minimum fee of $20.00. This fee must be paid at the time of submitting your application and the Building Commissioner is allowed up to five days to inspect and issue your permit. Be sure to apply for your permit in plenty of time before the actual construction is to begin. Lack of a permit means construction may be halted.

The town’s sewer system is a combined storm/sanitary system with over 28 miles of sanitary and 12 miles of storm pipe of varying sizes. The town has in place a Long Term Control Plan approved through IDEM to minimize the impact of Combined Sewer Overflows during rain events. The goal is to reduce and/or eliminate all wet weather overflows through several projects to meet EPA water quality standards. Current treatment at the wastewater plant produces 99% BOD removal, 98% Ammonia removal, and 97% total solids removal on a daily basis. The high quality recycled water is released into the Eel River. Biosolids are treated at the facility and land applied to a local farmer’s field to replenish nutrients needed for crop production. Annually, around 120 dry tons of biosolids are produced and incorporated into the soil.

Personnel:

The Town of North Manchester Wastewater Treatment Plant has a team of 6 individuals who manage the town’s wastewater treatment plant, collection system, and stormwater system. Job duties includes laboratory analysis, maintenance of equipment, grounds keeping, sewer cleaning, catch basin cleaning, locating utilities, etc.

Water Department

Welcome to the North Manchester Water Department, a division of Public Works.

The team at the North Manchester Water Deptartment works hard to make your water safe, and convenient.

Filters

How your water gets to you:

  • We draw water from 5 wells in two different aquifers, this water is pumped to the water treatment plant.
  • The first process at the plant is aeration, this helps to convert the natural iron so it can be removed.
  • Then the water is pumped through our iron removal filters, greatly reducing the iron content in the water.
  • We treat the water with a form of Cl2 to provide a highly efficient disinfectant, and it is added to public water supplies to kill disease-causing bacteria that the water or its transport pipes might contain.
  • The water is then pumped to the system to be carried to your homes.
