Starting on October 26th, 2018, any new fence requires a permit before construction can begin. A site plan is required with the permit, and the city must be notified within 24 hours of completion for an inspection. The fence permit is a part of a new amendment to the city's fence ordinance, approved by the City Commission on October 15th, 2018.
A fence permit can be obtained here or at the Public Works Administration Office. If you have any questions, please contact the zoning administrator at (616) 940-4817.
