Online Permits & Code Enforcement Portal


As of February 2023, a new online permits and code enforcement portal was launched.


You can now apply for your building permits; sewer permits and report violations at www.mygovernmentonline.org.  It’s easy, fast, and secure, and your information can be saved for convenience whenever using the service. 


Get Started in Minutes




To apply for permits you must first create an account.  You can register by creating a username and password at MyGovernmentOnline.


It takes only a few minutes to register, but if you need help with setting up your account, please go to www.mygovernmentonline.org/#contactus or call the MyGovernmentOnline Helpdesk at 866-957-3764 during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (EST)


After business hours you may leave a voicemail that will be answered the next day.  

You can also view our help document below.


Once registered, you can apply for permits using your dashboard at MyGovernmentOnline.


Please note:  Permits can be paid for with check, charge card or cash.  Customers can pay for their permits online via this website with credit cards or ACH check.  There will be a non-refundable service fee for Charge Card or ACH Payment and will appear as a separate charge on your Charge Card or Bank Statement.





You can now report a potential violation at www.mygovernmentonline.org by clicking on the Solution Center button and then choosing “submit a request”. Please select the issue/violation category that best matches your complaint. You may create an account that enables you to check case progress and receive updates, or you may choose to remain anonymous.
