Permit Process: Building, Site, and Zoning permits and plans are submitted to our front counter clerk.  They are then logged and routed to our building department for review.  Upon completion of their review, the plans are forwarded to the engineering department for site review and the planning department for zoning compliance.  Once each department has performed their reviews, any concerns are addressed between the three departments, the plans are stamped and signed.  Our front counter clerk will call to say the permit is ready and the fees owed for the building permit.  Construction can begin once the permit has been picked up and payment received.  Our Finance Department accepts cash, money order, check, or in-person card payment.
