Available Online Permits

There are several types of building permits that can be applied for online.

  • Electrical Services (Residential)
  • Mechanical Permit (Residential)
  • Plumbing Permit (Residential)

Electrical and Plumbing permit fees can be immediately paid after you submit the application online. Mechanical permits will have to be reviewed first by our building clerks. After one of our clerks has reviewed your application, you will receive an email to proceed with paying the fees if all information on the permit is correct.

My Permits

To access any permit that you have submitted online, log onto the CityView Portal, click on ‘MY ITEMS’ and expand the ‘My Permit Applications’ section.
