When is a permit required?

A permit is required for any alteration or repair to a building, any new building, fence, swimming pool, sign (new or face change), detached building, siding, decks, and special events. Separate permits are necessary for plumbing, electrical, mechanical & gas piping if these particular trades are being done.
