Building

Permits

Permits are issued for building, electric, plumbing, and mechanical work on new or existing structures. Permits are also issued for demolition work.

All permits must be posted at the job site. Electric, plumbing, and mechanical permits can be obtained from the clerk during regular office hours. A copy of a contractors license is required, or an affidavit must be signed by the property owner for work being done by the homeowner.
