 Instructions for Completing Plumbing, Mechanical and Electrical Permits

  • Homeowners need to fill in address only if mailing address is different than the property address.  Contractors need to fill in all information.
  • Type of Equipment:  If building a new residence, remodeling or putting on an addition, you may use the New Single Family Residence Fee.  For small remodeling or addition jobs, it may be more beneficial to use the Application Permit Fee and then check all that apply.  Add all fees together and make check payable to Marquette County.
