Building Permits

Our Village ordinance requires that a building permit be obtained for all changes or alteration made to a structure or property, new or existing, in the Village. For details on Village building requirements, see the the "Code of Ordinances" section. Please follow these procedures to obtain a building permit:

1. Obtain a Permit Application - these are available at the Village Office or you can request that one be mailed to you. (This is a tri-copy form, so it can not be downloaded).

2. Complete the Permit Application and return to The Office for review. You will then be notified if any additional information will be required, and the permit fee.

3. Pay for and pick up the official permit at the Village office - the amount of the permit will depend on the work being done. We accept cash, checks or credit cards at time of permit pick up.

4. Display official permit in a window or door visible to the street for the duration of the project applied for. Call The Village building inspector Trent Turner at 815-388-2780 for inspections as required.
