New Fillable Form Plumbing, Electrical, And Mechanical Permit Applications
We now offer fillable form plumbing, electrical, and mechanical permit applications that you can complete on your computer, save, and email into our office at CBinspections@councilbluffs-ia.gov. Other permit types will also be updated in the near future.
While there is no online portal to submit your permit application yet (that is coming in 2024) the form will allow you to clearly fill out a permit application and complete the transaction without printing off the paperwork. The ability to email this directly to our division speeds up the process. Then if you have a Direct Billing account you can pay online once the permit has been approved by staff. Remember our email address is CBinspections@councilbluffs-ia.gov.
If you have questions always feel free to contact our office at 712-890-5276.
