Fees for building permits vary depending upon the proposed project. The process for approval follows:
- Submit plans of the proposed project, including property lines, to the City Clerk
- Complete and sign permit application and builder's agreement
- The City's Building Inspector will inspect and approve plans (if okay) and attach appropriate fees
- City Council will vote on approval at the next Council meeting
- Once the fee is paid and Council approves the permit, construction may begin
Fines may be imposed if construction is started before a permit is approved or if occupancy is allowed before the City approves the structure. It is the builder's responsibility to inform the City Administrator and/or City Clerk when the project is ready for inspection.
Some examples of projects requiring permits are:
- Permanent sheds
- Additions which change the roofline of a home
- Patios or additions which do not change the roofline of a home
If you are unsure whether your project requires a permit, inquire at City Hall.
