Building Permit applications are available online, at the Code Enforcement Office, and by mail. Minor permits can be issued during walk-in hours. Permits for new dwellings, new commercial structures, shoreland, and flood require an office appointment.
The fee for a building permit is $10.00 per $1000.00 of the value of the project. For example if the cost of the project is $9,125.00 then the fee for the permit will be $91.25. There is a minimum $50.00 permit fee.

Yes, if it is part of or directly related to the original project. However, if one portion of the work has been done before the amended work is finished, the entire permit remains open until all work as been completed.
Example: If you take out a construction loan to remodel your kitchen and amend your permit to add a generator, both projects must be completed to obtain a final sign-off from the Code Officer.
