To obtain a building permit, submit your application along with 2 sets of plans at City Hall and pay initial fees. When your plans have been checked and approved, your permit will be ready to be issued. You will be contacted to come pay all remaining fees and pick up your permit.
An owner-builder must sign the form in person. Contractors may authorize an employee to sign building permits. This authorization must be given in writing. Contractors must also possess a current contractor's license and have a current City of Clearlake business license at the time of permit issuance.
