Mechanical Permit (Commercial & Residential Work) Application

 Step 1 of 1

Mechanical permits are required for work on any mechanical systems in a commercial or residential setting. Most mechanical work must be performed by a licensed and bonded contractor.*

* Owner-occupants meeting the requirements of applicable codes may perform repair or remodel work regulated by any of
the applicable codes on said existing dwelling together with any existing accessory buildings not used for commercial
purposes. To be eligible to perform work on a mechanical system, the work must be performed by the Owner in an Owner
Occupied Property and the residence shall qualify for the homestead tax exemption. Owner-occupants may not perform
work related to ‘service connection’ or ‘gas piping’. This work must be performed by a licensed and bonded contractor.

Additional conditions and permits may be required based on the type of work to be performed. If you are not sure what
types of permits are needed, the best way to find out is to call us at 563.326.7745. It is unlawful to perform mechanical
work without a permit. You may be fined if you proceed with work that requires a permit.
