General FAQ's



  • All permits shall be issued during the hours of 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
  • The General Contractor or owner will, at the time of being issued the permit, pay all permit fees including Building, Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical, and Gas, plus whatever other fees as may be required.
  • The Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical, and Gas permits will bear the number assigned the Building Permit. These permits will be retained on file in the Building Department office until the sub-contractors have been selected. The sub-contractors need to be informed of the permit number, that their permit has been pre-paid, and they are required to present themselves in the Building Department to sign for the permit.
  • Sub-contractors who commence work prior to obtaining their permit are subject to receiving a STOP WORK ORDER, and payment of additional fees when the permit is obtained.
  • The General Contractor is responsible to certify that Sub-contractors whose work is covered by the Building Permit, such as tile, drywall, and carpentry etc. , are licensed to do work in this City. Unlicensed sub-contractors found working on the job will result in a STOP WORK ORDER and/or delay receiving a Certificate of Occupancy on the whole project.
  • Notice of Commencement

NOTE:  People in the Historical Area MUST go through H.A.R.C. before applying for a building permit.
