Deck, Stairs, Patio Permit
Furnace / Air Conditioning
Permits are required to ensure that any new or altered Deck, Stairs, Platform, or Ramps meet strict building code standards to ensure safety for everyone who will be using them.
To get a permit, fill out the forms below. Once completed bring them into City Hall - Building Department located on the third floor, and ask to see a building inspector to start the process.
The permit cost will vary depending on the materials used and the size of the project. The Building Inspector will lay out any fees before you begin to avoid surprises once construction has started.
Once the permit has been issued you may begin construction on your project. Once it has been completed or have reached any milestone outlined by the Building Inspector, the Building inspector will visit the site to ensure construction was completed to meet minimum code requirements.
This information can change at anytime. If you have any questions or concerns prior to construction please contact one of our Building inspectors at (262) 636-9121.
