We encourage you to call our office at (920) 262-4060 prior to beginning any project to verify the necessity of a permit.  Please plan ahead!!  Many permits can be issued the same day. Other permits (i.e. building permits, fence permits, pool permits, etc.) require review by one of our inspectors.  Due to limited staff and inspection hours, we highly suggest turning in all paperwork at least 1 week prior to the date you would like to begin a project.  All permits are good for 1 year from the date they are issued.
