    Work Exempt From Permits

    Required Inspections

    The majority of the departments permits must be applied for in person but we have available the online system as well.

    This method should only be used for permits such as:

    Building: Roofing, Siding, and Windows.
    Electrical: Tele/data, Low Voltage.
    Plumbing: Water Heater, Gas lines.
    Mechanical: Furnace/Boiler.
    If the choices available do not apply to you, you must stop the application online and come into the office and pull the permit. If for any reason you choose to continue the application under a false work description your permit will be null and void and you will have to start the permit process over with possible penalty fees.

    Note: Completing the application process does not guarantee a permit, you must wait to receive your permit in the mail. To check on the status of your online application call the main office at 203-946-8045.
