Building Permit applications can be obtained at the City Hall during normal business hours (8:30-4:30, Mon.-Fri.). Most permit applications are generally processed within 7-10 days. Permits must be picked up and paid for before the project is started.
Applications for remodeling, additions, or new construction require two drawings of the project and diagram with set backs from property lines clearly marked on it. Please contact City Hall if you are unsure of the City's Zoning Ordinance setback requirements. The fee for the permit is based on the value of materials and labor, and is calculated by the City's Building Inspector.
All building contractors doing work within the city limits are required to show annual proof of their Minnesota contractor's license before a permit will be issued. A fax or photocopy of the Contractor's License is acceptable.
Remember to call Gopher State at 1-800-252-1166 if you are going to be doing any digging.
