A Right of Way permit may also be required should the fence be located within a public storm drain easement. A Flood Plain District permit may also be required should the fence be located within the limits of a designated 100 year flood plain. Please provide contact name; a daytime telephone number and the property address, the question or information requested. Someone from the Department of Permitting Services will be in contact to discuss the types of permits needed for the specific situation or property.
