PERMITS

For the protection of the public welfare, as well as the individual, the Township follows Zoning Ordinances. If you are planning a project, please contact the Township Office to see if a permit is required. Failure to obtain proper permits may cause unnecessary hardships to you and the township. Well and Sewage Permits should be picked up at the township building. Multiple carbon-copy forms are necessary when filing.

Permits are required by the Township for, but not limited to the following: new construction, additions, sheds, fences and structural alterations. Permits are required regardless of size and location. Permits are issued by the Zoning Officer after a plan is completely reviewed. Please allow up to ten days for processing.

NOTE: On-Line permits are provided for reference of information that is needed when filing actual permits with the township.
