Residential Rental Property Permitting

NOTE: JUNE 22, 2020

WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF MIGRATING TO A NEW ONLINE APPLICATION SYSTEM AND RENTAL PERMIT APPLICATIONS AND RENEWALS ARE CLOSED UNTIL THE TRANSITION IS COMPLETE.

WE EXPECT THE SYSTEM TO GO ONLINE WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK. PLEASE HOLD OFF ON RENEWING YOUR PERMIT UNTIL THE NEW SYSTEM IS ONLINE. WE WILL SEND AN EMAIL OUT TO ALL CURRENT PERMIT HOLDERS WHEN THE SYSTEM IS UP AND RUNNING.

YOU WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR A LATE RENEWAL IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO RENEW IN TIME DUE TO THIS DELAY.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE
