Do I need a permit for a fence?
Maybe, if the fence does not comply with the zoning regulations a permit and approval from the Zoning Board of Adjustment will be required. Regulations that apply to fences are under Chapter 168, Section 168.01. Contact the City Building Department at 641-782-2000, Option 3, with questions prior to constructing the fence.
