Check the Status of a Permit:

To check the status, go to your Dashboard and look at "My Active Permits"

Once your permit is in "Approved" status, you will be able to pay fees.

Pay Fees:

Click on the amount in the "Fees Due" column. Notice that when it's ready to be paid, it becomes a hyperlink.

If you have multiple permits that are approved, it will show all of them when you click on one of the fees. You can then uncheck any of the ones you do not wish to pay for at that time or pay for all of them.

Click "Proceed To Checkout" and then "Proceed To Payment". Enter your credit card information -- We only take Visa and MasterCard. Once credit card info is put in, click "Process Payment".

For permits applied for online: Once we see that the payment has been made, WE will change the status to "issued". This is when you can start the work that has been permitted.

You can also cancel inspections from this area as well.

*Any time an inspection is disapproved or given a partial approval, it automatically populates another inspection. You will be able to schedule it again using the notes above. If there is a re-inspection fee, you must pay it before it will allow you to reschedule.

*Our system will also not allow you to schedule an inspection if there are ANY fees due (ex. Revision fee, re- inspection fees, miscellaneous fee, etc.)
