Building permit packets are also available at City Hall, 401 N. Madison St. Plans and forms are inspected within 10 days of submission. Permit costs are based on the following approximate costs:
  • New construction: The approximate cost of a new one- and/or two-family dwelling is the selling price minus the lot cost, sewer cost, and water cost.
  • Other construction: the value being added to the property.

Permits will not be processed without valid licensing. Permit applications, submitted by documentation, will are reviewed within ten days of submission.

All costs for Spring Hill utility connections and all other charges must be paid when the permit is issued, except for the deferred payment plan for new home construction. This is part of the 2016 Economic Stimulus Program resolution.

Before any work may commence, all pertinent permits must be obtained.
