ZONING PERMITS

 If you live within the town limits of Morrison, you are  required to have a zoning permit in order to build, add-on or place any kind of structure on your property. This is required by Morrison’s Municipal Code.  In order to obtain a permit you must come to Town Hall and fill out an application.  There is a $50 NON-REFUNDABLE APPLICATION FEE.  If application is not filled out completely then it will not be accepted.  You are not approved to begin construction until permit has been issued. The permit is good for (6) six months beginning the date the permit is issued.  If an extension is needed, the permit holder must submit a request for an extension prior to existing permit expiring.  Once the application is submitted, it will be turned in to the Zoning Compliance Officer for inspection.  If everything is in compliance with the Zoning Ordinance, you will be given your permit. 

Things required to have a permit:

*Any new building or structure

*Swimming Pools

*Driveway tiles

*Any additions to existing buildings

*Storage buildings 

A failure to obtain a zoning permit prior to beginning any kind of work, will result in an additional $50 fine and a possible misdemeanor charge for violating the Zoning Ordinance.
