CITY HALL CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC 

In an effort to keep our employees and the community safe during the COVID-19 virus crisis, City Hall has been closed to the public. 

Our team is dedicated to keeping our virtual doors as open as possible, but there will be delays in our ability to provide some services. 

We will continue to update our list of online alternatives below. If you need to speak with someone, we recommend calling weekday mornings.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Building, HVAC, Electrical, and Plumbing Inspections are STILL REQUIRED

On-site inspections are not being done at this time. The City still requires inspections to be scheduled by calling 920-448-3300. After scheduling the inspection, you will be required to take representative pictures of the items to be inspected. You will then e-mail the photos to the inspector to review and approve. 

If the inspector has questions or concerns, the inspector will reach out to you or request additional pictures. If you have a question as to what to take pictures of, you will be transferred to the inspector’s voicemail and they will call you back within 24 hours to advise you. Please note, when the inspector calls from their cell phone, it will show up as a “restricted call” on your caller ID.

Plan Submittal

Plans can still be submitted for review and processing at the drop-box located at the back door of City Hall. If the box is not there when you arrive, or the plans are too big, please call 920-448-3300 and someone will come down to receive them. Due to the 6’ social separation requirement, the plans will be placed outside and we will pick them up. Payments for plan review can be made by check or by credit card online.
