Do I have to get a permit?

Permits are required for many installation and building projects within city limits, including but not limited to:  

  • Accessory Buildings (Sheds)
  • Alarm Systems
  • Any Kind of Building or Remodeling
  • Carports
  • Driveways
  • Heat and Air Change out
  • Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Installation, Alteration or Repair
  • Moving or Demolishing Existing Buildings
  • Patio Covers
  • Pools
  • Signs
  • Storm Shelters
  • Water Heater Change out

Work performed without a permit can incur a fine and double the permit fee.  Inspections cannot be performed on work that does not have a Permit on file.  

If in doubt, please call 405-390-2999 and speak to our Planning and Development Department. You can also view the applications for permits.
