All construction needs a permit.

The Planning Commission meets in the Albany Town Hall on the 1st Thursday at 7pm to conduct monthly business and approve building/demolition permits. They also meet on the 3rd Thursday at 7pm for permit approval only.

A permit application may be picked up in the Municipal Office Monday-Friday between 8:30am-4:30pm or downloaded from this website by clicking on the following link: Permit-090116

New permit requirements took effect as of November 1, 2013. Please be sure to read the permit application and have all of the required documentation available before coming to a meeting to have your permit approved.

Construction SHOULD NOT begin until your permit has been approved. If you proceed ahead of time and there are required changes, you will be responsible for the additional cost to correct the problem.

Questions for commissioners may be left at the Municipal Office 765-789-6112 and someone will return your call.
