Building and Demolition Permits

 
If you are constructing, renovating, or relocating a house, garage, accessory building, or deck, you will need a Building Permit. Also, demolition of structures will require a Permit.
 
Before a Permit can be issued, the Building Inspector will require information about your project such as plans/drawings and materials.
 
Permits and information can be obtained from the Building Inspector, Tyrone Mogenson at 306-728-0217.
 
Please be advised Building Permits may take up to 10 days to be approved.
