Building Department




You MUST obtain a floodplain permit before starting any repairs or rebuilding on your property.

When applying for a permit, you will receive information on how to build STRONGER, SAFER, and MORE SECURE.  Receiving a permit and following the floodplain guidelines will help protect you from future flooding.

We understand that you are eager to move forward, but this is a required and vital step in the rebuilding process.  We will work to make permitting as fast and simple as possible. Check with your local permit office.
