Do I need a permit?

Yes.  Permits allow the Borough to keep track of work being completed within the Borough and may be obtained by a property owner or contractor.  They also assure that work completed by private contractors is up to Borough standards.  

The fee for this permit is $55 and can be found online at  Included in the permit fee is the cost of all inspections; the permit process requires the applicant to perform certain safeguard checks such as PA One Call utility marking.  This is a free service that locates all underground utilities so contractors will avoid any gas, electric or other utilities being damaged.
