COVID-19 Update:


Due to the rising cases in Huntington County our office will have limited access for the public, if you have documents that need to be dropped off or need to talk to a staff member please call a head of time so we can plan accordingly,  we encourage you to take advantage of our online permitting software Schneider Permitting to apply for any permit at home and pay online if you can.

If you do not have access to a computer, we have one set up right outside of our office that the public can use to apply for permits.

As always if you need assistance or have any questions, please call our office we would be happy to assist you.

Thank you.
