When mailing your registration, include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Your receipt serves as your registration and will be sent back to you in this envelope. When registering in person at City Hall, please bring all items directly to the clerk's window.

Please note: Your registration is not complete until all items have been provided. If we have received payment, but the bond is not recorded or the insurance certificate is not provided, it will hold up the issuance of the building permit, delay inspections, or delay the issuance of final occupancy.
