Please take note that permits are required for almost everything done within the Village whether it be building or excavating. Please check with the office before beginning any construction projects to get all the necessary paperwork and approvals in place first. There may be some cases where it is not needed but we would prefer to have the heads up about it. This will also eliminate neighbors and council members asking if a permit is in place when they see construction taking place. Everything must go to a council meeting for approval which are held monthly so please plan ahead well in advance of your project start date. No approvals will be given prior to a meeting and there may be fines implemented for not complying and starting without an approval first.
