A list of licensed excavators and concrete contractors is available from the Engineering or Public Works departments at (605) 626-7010. It is better to call before work begins to make sure that you have the right to do the work. If permits are not obtained where required, penalties may be assessed.
Building Permits Required
No building or structure regulated by the city's Municipal Code
shall be erected, constructed, altered, enlarged, repaired, moved, converted, or demolished without first obtaining a building permit. As of January 1, 2007, a building permit is required for replacement of windows and doors. View a list of exemptions
