Central Permitting
The Central Permitting Department offers citizens one convenient location to apply and pay for certain county services. Our department can assist citizens applying for Environmental Health Site Analysis (perc test), Authorization to Construct (ATC) and Well Permits.  Our Central Permitting Technicians issue building permits after the homeowner or contractor has met with Building Inspectors for plan review and Planning & Zoning for land use compliance. Homeowners and contractors contact our office to schedule building inspections. 

Central Permitting accepts county water/sewer payments and some Environmental Health classes such as Serv-Safe. 

Central Permitting staff can also assist with looking up Environmental Health historical data. Please thoroughly read the information located on the Historical Request Lookup Form. The Tax Office can offer assistance in finding PIN numbers and parcel number information or it can be found on your tax listing/payment forms.
