Posted on Monday, August 14, 2017 | Press & Media, News & Announcements

Wyoming, Michigan, August 14, 2017 – The City of Wyoming Community Services Inspections Department will offer the ability to apply for permits online starting September 5. The service, facilitated by the website, will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and will provide a convenient method for residents and contractors to apply for various permits.

Currently, residents and contractors must apply for permits in person at the Inspections Department at Wyoming City Hall, 1155 28th St SW or through the mail. Following implementation of the new system, individuals seeking plumbing, mechanical or electrical permits will be able to apply directly online at any time of day using their computers or mobile devices. Common activities that require permits of these types include replacements of water heaters, furnaces, mast repairs, electrical service upgrades, additional plumbing fixtures and underground sprinkling. Permits that require detailed plans to be submitted as well as building permits are not eligible for this service and must still be applied for in person.

“We are excited to offer this online service as we know it will help save time and expense for local residents and contractors,” says Rebecca Rynbrandt, Director of Community Services for the City of Wyoming. “There is a lot of construction activity in the city and we want to facilitate growth in whatever ways we can.”

The Inspections Department will be holding two open houses at their office in Wyoming City Hall to train interested participants on the new system: Thursday, August 24 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Tuesday, September 12 from 8 a.m. to noon. Computers will be available for use and participants are also welcome to bring their own devices. For those unable to attend an open house, a step by step registration guide and video tutorial will be available on the City website beginning August 14, 2017.
