We provide information and assist with applications for County Permits for land use, structures, shoreland permits, assist in assigning E-911 property address', process sanitary permits, issue sign permits, process applications for public hearing actions such as zone changes, conditional use permits and variances and assist state and federal agencies with their permitting when needed.
