The Cole County Commission unanimously voted Tuesday, June 4, 2019 to waive building permit fees for storm-damaged homes due to the May 22, 2019 tornado. Homeowners will still need to obtain a permit for any major repairs or rebuilding. Inspections for all repairs or rebuilding will still need to be approved by the Cole County Public Works Inspectors. Permits are only needed for major work on a home. No permit is necessary for replacing shingles or soffit that the storm may have torn off. If you have any questions please feel free to call our office at 573-636-3614.
