Brad Miller - Zoning Administrator
-All new construction and additions require building permits. If you are changing your roofline (adding to a roofline in any way), you will need a building permit. Sheds, carports, and covered decks all require a building permit before placement. Building permits vary in price, based on the scope of the project.
-There is only one accessory building (like a shed or carport) allowed on a parcel.
-Any indoor remodeling or updates do not require permits. If any plumbing is being added to a home or business, a licensed plumber must be used and a plumbing inspection is required. Licensed plumbers will make the call for the inspection. Plumbing inspection questions go to Ray Hall with the Illinois Department of Public Health at Verbin.firstname.lastname@example.org
-Permits are required for all new fences. Fencing permits are $25
-Any requests that are outside of the existing Zoning Code allowances will need a Variance Application. The Variance and Special Use process takes 60 days and does cost $109.31
