We know, we know. No one likes to deal with government for every little thing you do. But, the folks that issue permits are very helpful and can answer your questions quickly. Plus, there are penalties for not getting proper permission to install a fence. Click on the link below for your community’s fence codes. If you have any concerns or questions, please call them direct as sometimes codes change, or they have specific hours that permits can be obtained. If you do not see your city, village or town, please call your local administrative offices to inquire about fence codes/permits. Do not forget to check with any Home Owner’s Association (HOA) to see if there are any additional covenants restricting fences where you live.
