Building Inspections Department Still Available

During the City Hall closure, effective March 23, 2020, the Building Inspections Department is still available for new applications, questions, and required inspections. Contact us at 507-616-7400 or

All Building and Zoning applications are available online. Applications can be submitted by email, mail or through the City Hall dropbox located in the north alley at 333 S. Washington Street.

Applications for permits should be submitted well in advance of the scheduled construction start date. This will allow City staff time to offer assistance and issue permits by the start of the project.

If you are unsure if your project requires a permit, please contact the Inspections Department at 507-616-7400 or
