Our building department is currently being reorganized. We appreciate your patience as we work through this transition.

The Board of Alderman recently adopted the 2018 International Code Council building codes. Look below to find links to view them online.

Building Permits

The first step in getting a building permit is to fill out the application. Once your application and site plan have been submitted to City Hall, someone will be in touch with the next steps. Depending on the project, 3rd-party or engineering reviews may be necessary. Once your application and plans have been reviewed, a permit can be issued. This process can take up to 60 days to complete.

If you have any questions about building codes, or building permits, please call Andrew at City Hall. He can be reached at 417-634-3992 ext. 200.

Building Inspections

To schedule a building inspection, you can call our building inspection line at 417-634-3992 opt. [] and leave a message. You can also send an email to [email protected]
