How do I get a building permit?

To apply for a building permit you must complete the application and submit it to the Inspections Department. When applying for a building permit you must provide a plot plan showing where on the property the structure will be located. In the event that city water and sewer will not be available, you must supply an approved well and septic permit from the County Health Department.

Nearly all Building Permits require a Zoning Permit that must be approved by the Planning Department.

Permit applications may be emailed to or dropped off at the Planning and Inspections office located 102 South 5th Street. The application fees must be paid and a permit issued prior to beginning any work.
