COVID-19 Update

Community and Economic Development is here for you just in a little different way.

In an effort to help offset the economic challenges the City is facing from COVID-19, the Community and Economic Development Department will be closed on Fridays starting May 22, 2020 through July 24, 2020. We will do everything we can to provide the same level of service to our customers during this temporary interruption in our regular business hours.

At this time the Permit Center is closed to the public until further notice. However, we continue to be available to assist you through our remote services. Please explore these options:

Option 1

The city's Permitting Portal is an excellent way to:

  • Pay a permit invoice 

  • Apply and receive an over-the-counter permit

  • Schedule an inspection

Option 2

  • Many permitting questions and additional information can be found by visiting the city's permits page.

  • Need Code Compliance information? Visit the city's Code Compliance page.

Option 3

City staff continues to be available to assist you.
