Are you planning to construct a new house, garage, pole barn or shed? Are you thinking about remodeling your existing house, building a deck or replacing your stucco? Finishing your basement? Working on an extensive landscaping project? Installing a fence? Adding a swimming pool? Replacing windows? Be sure to visit our Building Permit page to ensure you are complying with Federal, state, and local laws!


Minnetrista has now made it easier for contractors and/or residents to pay for their building permits. You can now pay with a credit card over the phone or in person for a small 2.75% convenience fee (additional $0.50 for transactions below $100).  Applicants are also able to pay by check over the phone for a $1.00 service fee.  For security reasons, we will not be accepting credit card payments through the mail or fax.


Whether you have a licensed liquor establishment and need to upload renewal forms or are planning a one-day event for which you need a temporary liquor license, you can find information here.


Requested supplimentary materials MUST be submitted to the City at the time of application or it may result in your application being denied.  License and permit fees vary and are listed on the current fee schedule which can be viewed by clicking here .
