Open Gov will allow homeowners and contractors to apply directly online through the Open Gov software application. (You may need to sign up as a user initially.) You will be able to upload all files and requested documents and potentially receive approved permits in as little as one business day. The concept is to expedite permits, reduce paper and inform you on the go that an inspection has been performed. We look forward to working with the residents and contractors moving forward and are confident that the transition will go smoothly. Please call Jack at 608-270-4242 if you have any questions or experience any issues with the program.
