Permits and Housing inspections
Lewisburg Borough requires that all housing be inspected every two years.
All inspections for Lewisburg are done by CK-COG, the Central Keystone Council of Governments. This is an organization of municipalities who work together to administer the inspection process and enforcement of the construction code.
All inspections are based on the 2006 International Property Maintenance Code.
Before signing a lease, students should request a copy of the:
- Public Housing Permit issued by CK-COG.
- Current letter from COG stating that the property has passed inspection and the permit is current.
- Copy of the permit application listing the property owner’s name and address (and in the event the owner lives more than 30 miles from Lewisburg, the designated property operator’s name and address)
If students have questions or concerns about the safety or condition of their house, they should first contact their landlord. If further assistance is needed they should contact Chad Smith, the Borough Manager at 523-3614 and, if necessary, contact CK-COG toll free at 1-877-457-9401. Their website is www.ckcog.com
Remember that no more that three unrelated persons are permitted to live in the same rental unit per borough ordinance.
