Permits & Inspections


Only issues caused by Hurricane Nicholas, such as roofing repairs, siding repairs, sand removal from underneath homes, and general clean up/maintenance, do not require a permit from the Building Department until further notice. Building permits are required if replacing the entire roof or more than 10% of siding per wall area. 



All property owners with beach front property will have to follow the following guidelines regarding dune restoration.

1. If prior to the hurricane the resident placed sand fencing or rope fencing and it was damaged by the storm, it is the property owners responsibility to remove it per the GLO.

2. If the property owner is requesting Dune restoration or put out the sand or rope fencing approval goes through the GLO. The city does not issue permits for dune restoration or sand fencing. Applications can be filled out and the city will forward to the GLO for final disposition.
