The City of Wyoming prides itself on being responsive to residents’ needs. We strive to review permit applications within five business days, but we ask you to allow us up to ten business days for the review to be completed. If the documents are found to be complete and comply with the applicable provisions of the Code, you will be called or emailed when your permit is ready to be picked up.
No, but the permit fee must be paid before the permit is issued.
If additional information is needed or if the proposed project fails to meet the requirements of the Code, you will be sent a letter requesting the additional information or advising you of the non-compliant aspects of the proposed project as well as the options available to you. An appeal process is available to those applicants who have had their permit applications denied.
Appeals must be filed within thirty days after the date of the decision by the City Manager, (or representative thereof), from which the denial is made. All appeals must be in the form of a typewritten letter and must include sufficiently detailed plans to clearly show the scope of the work, if applicable. Eight copies of the application and all required information, including the plans and survey, must be submitted in order for the appeal to be considered. A filing fee of $200 must accompany the application.
The permit expires if work is not completed within a year after it is issued. Expiration also occurs when work does not commence within six months of its issuance or after 12 months of work stoppage. The permit may be renewed once, for six months at half the price of the original permit ($10 minimum/ $100 maximum).
Cash, personal or business checks or credit/debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) are acceptable methods of payment.
Work cannot begin until the permit is approved, paid for, and issued.
