Building Permits

A permit is generally required for remodeling projects that involve changes to the building's existing footprint, electrical system or plumbing. A permit is also required for any new builds.

If your project is located within a city's limits, you will need to review the codes and permits for that city in addition to Stone County's codes and permits.  Building codes will vary from city to city. Before beginning a build or remodeling project, refer to Stone County Planning & Zoning for questions and/or applications.

For Contractors, there is a copy of the Building Permit Packet along with all applications provided by the Planning and Zoning Department – Available in P & Z office 112 E. 5th Street, Galena, MO 65656
