Building Permits

Building permits are required for all construction, including but not limited to: accessory buildings including storage sheds, decks, fences, home additions, satellite dishes, and signs, permanent and temporary.

The Village Planning Commission approves building permits for all new home construction, home additions, fences, signs and zoning changes.

A Building Permit Application should be completed and returned to the Department of Public Works. If you have questions about building permits and fees, contact Brett Edgerle at (920) 459-3881 or

Planning Commission meetings will be scheduled on the second Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. All plans must be submitted by the first Wednesday of the month to be included on the Planning Commission agenda.
