Permits, Fees & Handouts

Inspections are required on all permits.  Please call 507-457-8231. A four-hour notice is required for building inspections. Due to special circumstances, we may ask for a longer notice.  Each inspection will be handled case by case. 

Owners that will be doing the work themselves must fill out an affidavit form and enclose the form with the application.

Affidavit Form

All permits must be saved before submitting. Download application first, save to your folder and fill out and submit.

Drop Box

Hours are 8:00 a.m. -4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday.
