In response to COVID-19, City Hall and other City facilities are temporarily closed to public access, but the City is still open for business and we are accepting and processing all permit applications. However, in compliance with the County’s Executive Order, the City is only issuing building permits for the following at this time: 

  • Construction of new residential units
  • Construction on existing residences for the repair of critical health/safety items such as roofing, heating, water heaters or other items necessary to maintain adequate health and sanitation
  • Construction on commercial structures occupied by essential businesses
  • Construction on commercial structures occupied by non-essential businesses for the repair of critical health/safety items such as roofing, heating, water heaters or other items necessary to maintain adequate health and sanitation. The County’s current list of non-essential businesses required to close their physical locations can be found here: https://www.emergencyslo.org/en/businesses-to-close-physical-locations.aspx
