Almost every new structure and most renovations/repairs that involve structural changes or utilities (plumbing, gas, electric) require a Building Permit. The review & approval of permits by the City ensures that construction/renovation meets the Building Codes which the City has adopted, is consistent with the zoning and approved land use for that property and helps protect the health, safety and welfare of our residents, businesses and the general public 

We’re here to help! We encourage anyone considering new construction or remodeling to call us before you begin. We want to ensure everyone’s projects get started timely, correctly and in compliance with City regulations. Stop by City Hall, 250 S. Main Street, or call the Code Enforcement Officer at 816-779-2226 for assistance. Most Permits require a site visit and take about three (3) days to review. We’ll contact you when the Permit is ready to be picked up or if there are problems to address.
