What projects require a building permit?

A building permit is required to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy of any commercial or residential building or structure. This includes:

  • Accessory Buildings
  • Curb Cuts
  • Pools
  • Signs
  • Other Projects and Repairs to Be Determined by the Building Official

We can no longer care for our family pet. What options are available to us?

If you have to get rid of your pet for any reason, there are many options available. You can advertise in the local newspaper or on the radio. Most newspapers and radio stations offer free advertisements for pet giveaway. Local supermarkets have bulletin boards and allow pet owners to place flyers on these. Animal Control also has two bulletin boards. One is located inside the building and the other is located outside on the Southern wall. 


If none of these resources work or if you must give your pet away immediately, you can do an owner impound at Animal Control for a $20 fee. If you do an owner impound please bring any shot records, vet records, and tags for your pet. These can greatly increase the chance of adoption for you pet.

Does Animal Control have a volunteer program? If so, how do I volunteer and what would my duties be?

Animal Control welcomes and appreciates volunteers. To volunteer just pick up an application at Animal Control, fill it out, and we will contact you when your application has been approved. Volunteers are used primarily to socialize the animals. This helps prepare them for adoption and also gives them the attention that is important for any prospective pet. Volunteers can also walk dogs and assist with adoptions. Volunteers can choose the hours they work between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., 7 days a week. Any time spent volunteering is greatly appreciated.
