Permit Applications & Portal 

You no longer need to mail, email, or visit our office to submit your permit applications! Just go to: Permit Portal

Our new cloud-based permit Permit Portal provides you direct access to our office where you can apply for permits from your home or office or anywhere using a mobile device.

We will be able to receive your permit application at any time even when our office is not open.

You will be able to interact with us through the portal to follow the progress of your permit from the permit submittal all the way through to the final inspection.

Three easy steps to get started:

  1. Log in to create a username and account.
  2. Apply for your Business Registration or License
  3. Apply for your permit.
