Building permits, governed under the MN Building Code, are required for any owner or contractor who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy/use of a building or structure. A permit is also required to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert, or replace any gas, mechanical, electrical, plumbing system, shingles, siding or other equipment when the installation is regulated by the code.
A person wanting to do such work shall make application to the building official and obtain a permit prior to the beginning of any construction activity. Questions about whether or not a permit is required should contact the Building Official.
