Permits

Permit Applications can be downloaded below or picked up at the Township Office.

Office hours are limited and by appointment only, therefore paper copies of permit applications have been left in the white mailbox located directly next to the Township Office door. Please do not confuse this with the white library box located near the Town Hall.

 

You may drop off your completed application back in the white mailbox or there is also a larger tan package box for your use if needed, also located directly next to the Township Office door.

You must review your form(s) for completeness and include the $60 review fee that is required of all Building Permit Applications.

Applications with missing line-items, additional required forms and/or payment will not be reviewed.
