Our office is located at 204 North McKenna Avenue (the old downtown business district).
At Highway 6 / 31 and Angus Streeet, turn west and go approximately three to four blocks to the stop sign. At the stop sign turn north to the end of the block and we are located on the corner of Wallace and McKenna. Our office is downstairs.
Permit applications may be obtained at our office Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Permits may be paid for by check, cash or credit cards, in person only.
To schedule an inspection, please call the office 402-332-3336; ext. 1209. You may reach the Building Inspector, Aaron at ext. 1213, for questions. The Building Department hours are Monday - Friday, between 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Please allow a 24-hour notice when scheduling an inspection. Inspections are scheduled for a.m. or p.m.; however, we will schedule a specific inspection time for footings, foundations, water taps and sewers. We do not recommend leaving a message for setting up an inspection. If you leave a message for an inspection, please do not assume it is set up unless we confirm with you. A re-inspection fee of $80 per inspection will be charged in excess of two. For commercial projects you will also need to contact the State Fire Marshall’s Office at 402-471-2027.
