Contractors can now apply for sub permits and request inspections online through the Linn County Planning and Development Department’s website. Contractors must first contact the Planning & Development Department to receive a web ID number. The Planning & Development Department can be contacted by phone at 319-892-5130 or by email at [email protected]. Once the web ID number is assigned, contractors can then create an account and register for these services. Once registered, a contractor can apply for a permit online. For now, only sub permits can be applied for online.
Active permits can be viewed and requests for inspections for any active permit can be made online. Requests can be made online up to 3:30 p.m. for inspections the following day and can be cancelled online prior to 7:00 a.m. on the day of the inspection.
Brochures with step-by-step instructions are provided on the Linn County Planning & Development Department’s webpage under the “Building Handouts” section.
For more information, or if you need help with registration or with online applications, please call the Planning & Development Department at 319-892-5130.
