Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process for getting a building permit?

Take a moment to read all required information provided. Then print and fill out the building permit application form and return to city hall.  Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to give us a call or send us an email.  We will be happy to help you.

What do I need to know when putting up a fence?

You must be within your property lines.  If you do not know where they are located, you are responsible for getting your property surveyed to find out.  All fences require a zoning permit.  Our zoning official will then come and view your property to see if any further requirements are needed.
