Permit Application Process
As of October 1, 1997, the City of Gainesville Building Department began accepting permit applications for Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing permits via fax. Below are the procedures that will be used until such time that a more efficient process is developed.
Submit the original notarized Letter of Credit Authorization to the Building Department. This document should have the signature of the person holding or responsible for credit card transactions, as well as the printed name of the signing party and the "ideal" FAX number for the company. (See the sample Letter of Credit Authorization in the forms section of this website.)
- After the Letter of Credit Authorization has been reviewed and approved the company can begin to FAX permit applications.
- Each permit application shall consist of the Mail-in/FAX Permit Application and appropriate permit fee schedule worksheet. These can be obtained in person from the Building Inspection Department, or may be printed from the forms section of this website.
- When the application is received in our office (preferably prior to 3:30pm) it is reviewed and processed.
Additional information can be obtained by contacting the Building Inspection Department at (352) 334-5050 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
