What is the process for obtaining a permit?

The process for obtaining a permit is to complete an application which you can get from City Hall or find on the website in the Building Inspections / Zoning page. A completed application, proper documentation, and fees need to be submitted to city hall. The type of work you are doing will determine the required submittal documents. The type of the project will determine the fees. Once your application has been received it will be reviewed. If the submittal documents require corrections, or it is incomplete, it may take longer. Make sure that you start your paperwork early. We do not want the city review to hold up your schedule. When the review is completed a building permit will be issued and you will be notified that the permit is ready for pickup at City Hall.  The Hard paper page of the permit must be displayed as to be visible from the street.  

If you are using a contractor for any work, verify they are Wisconsin Certified if required.
