Permit and Inspection Processes

Our public counter remains open for submittal of plans and issuance of building permits. We will be practicing social distancing in our lobby, which will limit the number of people in our waiting area. We are following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s guideline for preventing the spread of COVID-19, which includes staff wearing masks when in public areas. Please be sure to follow CDC guidelines, and self-check for symptoms before entering City Hall. Hand sanitizer is provided in several locations, and if you need a mask, we will be happy to provide one at no charge. 

To submit plans, you can sign in with the receptionist, and you will be served in order, as listed.  If our lobby is at capacity, or if it is your choice, you may leave a cell phone number with our receptionist, and wait outside or in your vehicle, and we will call you when we are ready to serve you.
