Permits

Question

How do I get a building permit?

Answer

Depending on what you want to build, the first step is to check with Dodge County Land Resources Department  to see if a County Land Use Permit is required.  See the list of project types here.

Building permits are issued once a building inspection has been completed by Kunkel Engineering on behalf of the Town of Lomira.  Contact Rob Froh at 920-382-6202 with questions regarding what types of projects need a building inspection. 

A Town Land Use Permit is required for most projects that require a County Permit. The fee schedule is found here. Once the County Land Use permit is approved, you will be invoiced for the Town Permit.
