Spring will be here one of these days and the city of Gilman would like to remind residents and contractors that in most cases a permit and inspection are required.
The ordinance reads: “No buildings, dwellings, or structures shall be erected, constructed, altered, expanded, dismantled, placed or excavation done without prior inspection by the building inspector and a building permit being issued by said inspector.”
Swimming pools also require a permit.
Permits are not required when:
A. Recurring maintenance of structures, dwellings, or buildings;
C. On farms where five acres or more are involved;
D. Accessory buildings covering less than eighty square feet, being less than seventy-five inches tall and not permanently fixed to the ground shall need a permit, but no charge will be made. All yard requirements shall be met.
Application for building permits shall be made available at the office of the city clerk.
