Hello Contractors and Homeowners,

Please welcome Joe Jaramillo with Fire Marshal Services. Joe and his team are now providing plan review and inspections for the Wellington Fire Protection District. Please Email Joe at for WFPD applications or permitting questions. Wellington has adopted the 2023 National Electric Code.

A copy of the NFPA 70, 2023 National Electric Code is available at the Wellington Public Library, or at the Wellington Municipal Services Building for reference during regular hours.

As a friendly reminder to contractors, please continue to keep recycling containers and materials on site, and off streets and sidewalks. Also, please remember to maintain weed control (less than 6”) and debris removal on all lots. We appreciate your efforts to provide safe and clean projects in Wellington.
