This week on The County Seat, we explore the topic of building permits and business licenses. When you’re thinking about building an extension to your home, or maybe even an out building, you need to check with your county government and obtain the correct permits. Dan Pope has a report in our first segment filling us in on the background of this topic.
In the first section of our round table discussion, host Chad Booth takes a look at the process to get a permit or license. The panel of experts includes representatives from Salt Lake County Planning and Zoning, Salt Lake County Health Department, and Salt Lake County Unified Fire Authority.
In the final segment of this week’s discussion, the group wraps things up by talking about the final steps an applicant needs to take with each department before getting a permit or license.
In this segment, the panel discusses the appeals process for building and planning. If you’re told “no”, it’s not the end of the world. Our panel talks about different ways individuals can go through the proper channels to appeal the initial decision. They also talk about things to look out for when applying for a permit or license.
