Demolition Permits

The City Code requires that demolition work be done only after the issuance of a demolition permit.

Applicants are required when requested to submit a debris disposal plan, rodent control certificate, photographs, workman's compensation certificate (if work not performed by an individual) and liability insurance. Applicants are also required to complete an Environmental Assessment Form. A water abandonment and/or obstruction/barricade may also be required.
