Permits and why they are required

Posted at 1:00 PM

A fence permit is required by most cities and townships when you install a new fence or replace an existing fence.  The cost of the permit varies, and can be secured at the City Hall.  The permit will require a drawing of where the fence will be installed on the property and how far from the lot lines.  Along with the permit, the city will spell out what they require as set backs, fence types and heights.  Each city is different so it is best to check with city hall for their requirments.  If your property is on a corner lot it is important to know the visual triangle.  These set backs protect the vision of drivers.
