PERMITS IN PROCESS
We're currently experiencing a substantial increase in permit applications. As a result, the turnaround times for plan checks and permit reviews are taking longer than usual . We apologize for the inconvenience. Please know we are diligently working to get your plan check and/or permit review completed as quickly as possible so your permit can be issued. You can check on the status of your permit through our online Permit Status link on the Building and Planning Services web pages. If you have any questions, please call our Ombudsman, Katie Rider, at 530-621-5352.
Effective July 1, 2019, we will resume the collection of all Permit Application Fees at the time of submittal. At this time we are only accepting cash or checks.
