Why do I need a building permit?
The building permit review, approval and inspection process is a way that we at the City of Monticello can help protect the interest of the community. This is done by reviewing proposed work for compliance with our building and zoning requirements. Then we will inspect the work to ensure that it is being done in a workmanlike manner and that it is built per the approved plans/design.
