Building Permits

BUILDING PERMITS MUST be obtained PRIOR to beginning construction for all Permitbuildings -- farm and residential. This includes all structures being erected, placed, altered, relocated, removed, or demolished. The Permit Fee Schedule has been revised to cover the cost of inspections by the Building Inspector, Ed Penner, of Altona. Demolition Permits are necessary to have the building removed from your assessed property.

Please contact the Municipality for Permit Applications.
