The Building Division accepts applications for permits to replace residential water heaters, gas line repairs and lawn sprinkler installations online. (Note: Online permits for water heater replacements do not permit alteration or modification to the electrical or gas system.)
The link button below allows you to complete your permit application. There is no charge for this permit type; fees are waived under the Homeowner's Relief Act.
You must include a valid e-mail address when applying for a permit. When your permit application is processed, we will only send notification to the e-mail address you provide.
We will make every effort to respond the same day if your application is received early in the business day, but please allow up to three working days for processing. You will be contacted with a disposition. If the permit is issued, we will provide your permit Record ID number and information on how to call for inspections. Please make sure to tell the inspector that you are an online permittee.
By clicking the Online Permit Application button above, I affirm the following:
That NO work or installation will commence prior to the issuance of a permit and that all work will be performed to meet the standards of all laws regulating construction/operation in this jurisdiction. I hereby agree that I will, in all respects, perform the work in accordance with the scope of the permit, the County-adopted building codes and all other applicable laws, regulations, standards and ordinances.
That all information given will be accurate and that all work will be done in compliance with all applicable laws regulating construction and zoning.
