Whether you're a do-it-yourselfer, or a professional
contractor, at least one week prior to the start of any
construction, a building permit must be obtained from the
office of the code enforcement officer for any type of
remodeling, additions, etc., except for minor repairs and
painting. Our code enforcement officer is Anthony Horton and
he can be reached at 304-365-1408 or 304-986-2700 ext
Professional contractors must have a city license
before applying for your permit. This license can be purchased
at the City Clerk's Office at City Hall.
