When do I need to purchase a building permit?

A permit is required for most building projects (Additions, Fences, Decks, Garage, any changes to structure, etc). It is a good idea to check with the Village Office to find out for sure if you need one BEFORE starting a project. The cost for a permit is doubled if a project is started without one.
