Building Inspection

No structure, fence or sign may be erected, converted, enlarged, moved, demolished, reconstructed or altered without first obtaining a Permit, and no structure or land may be used for any purpose nor in any manner which is not in conformity with the provisions of City Ordinance. The Building Inspector will issue a Permit only after determining that the building plans, together with the application, comply with City Ordinance. If the Building Code does not require a Building Permit, a Permit must still be obtained to ensure compliance with setback, height and use restrictions and City Ordinance.

Building permits are required for any new construction, remodeling, building relocation, siding, roofing, driveways, signs, decks and fences. More information is available in the city ordinances found here.

Building permit applications are available at City Hall. The permit fee shall be based on the valuation of the project determined by the Building Inspector. All permits are issued by the Building Inspector, Nancy Scott, who meets by appointment. To schedule an appointment contact Nancy @ 320-293-5298.
