Building Permits & Inspections

All construction, alterations, remodeling, enlargements, improvements, conversions, leveling, moving or demolition of any structure or building in the city limits requires a building permit

Notice: In response to COVID-19, Building Inspection Protocol (DOCX) has been changed.

Permits are required for new fences, grading or clearing of vacant land, signs, swimming pools over 24" deep or more than 5,000 gallons, re-roofing a building, plumbing, electrical work, air conditioning and for storage buildings exceeding 120 square feet in size.
