One should get a Building Permit to construct or modify a structure. The building permit is also needed for electrical and plumbing work. In the case of regular property maintenance that does not alter the structure, a Building Permit is not required.
Inspections are required as part of the building permit and construction process.
To obtain a Building Permit, fill out the application and return to City Hall as directed below. To inquire about inspections, contact Building Code Permits and Inspections at (217) 345-5650.
