SPANISH FORK — The city's building inspection division is reminding residents to obtain a building permit before constructing an accessory structure or fence.

Spanish Fork now issues building permits for fences and most accessory buildings free of charge. The process allows the city to verify that a fence or shed is in the correct location and that all of the requirements in the municipal code are met before construction commences.

City residents can apply for building permits for fences and accessory structures, as well as all other building permits, online at Look for the Citizenserve logo link to the page that will provide the necessary applications.
