Why Get a Permit

·   Permits provide third-party verification that you (or the contractor you hired) did the work to minimum code requirements

·   Permits provide the homeowner with an inexpensive resource for construction-related needs

·   Permits give you access to expertise in all fields including plumbing, mechanical, electrical and framing

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE!

Due to the current CDC guidelines for Covid-19, the Town of Monument staff are working remotely. We will be processing all permit applications via email, telephone and USPS.
