How do I go about obtaining a permit?
First you should contact the Construction Department for a list of criteria required for each specific type of work. Once you have all of the information / paperwork required, you can complete a construction permit application. Once this process has been completed, the department staff will review your permit for the proper criteria, and process for approvals. Contact the Construction Department at 609-737-0612 for more information.
