Each permit type has specific application requirements and approval processes.

2. Complete the building permit application.
3. Submit your building permit application packet.
All permit applications must include the required deposit fee. Fees may be paid by: cash, escrow account fund, checks (payable to Marion County BOCC) or credit cards.
