Building Permits

Obtaining a Permit

The public is encouraged to phone, 785-403-0000 Option 3, or email Monica Peterson at the Planning and Zoning office to inquire about the process for obtaining a building permit. Verification can be made regarding a parcel's eligibility for a building permit. The parcel can be checked for zoning compliance, potential floodplain areas, and access to the property. Contact information may also be obtained regarding rural water availability, permitted access requirements from a county road or state highway system, and on-site wastewater systems.
