 What if I don’t get a permit?
Permits are required by Town Ordinances and Wisconsin State statutes. If you don’t get one when you should the Permit Officer may fine you for every day the work is not in compliance. This can be expensive. The permit and accompanying inspections are to assure you that the work is up to code and safe. Projects not done according to code can affect your home’s insurability and potential sale. Prospective buyers can check the Town’s building records.
