When can you obtain a permit?

The Inspectors are typically in the office between 8:00–9:00 a.m. and 12:30-1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, to issue permits and answer any questions you may have regarding your proposed project. The remainder of the work day, they conduct on-site inspections. However, if these times are not convenient for you, contact the Division of Inspection, Zoning and Electrical Systems at 715.261.6780, and they are generally able to make other arrangements for you to meet with their staff.

What is the cost of a permit?

Payment of permits can be completed online at Evolve.  Applying online is not available yet.
