The Building Division provides coordination for all required plan reviews and inspections by city staff (building, planning, fire, stormwater, utitlites, and health) for any construction project requiring a building permit. They additionally coordinate either the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy for all new buildings or a Certificate of Completion for all other projects once successfully completed.
To schedule an inspection, please visit the city's Citizenserve Portal or contact the Planning & Development Department at (417) 337-8549 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM.
If you intend to demolish/renovate a building...
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) regulates most demolition projects involving institutional, commercial, public, industrial, or residential structures. In addition, the DNR regulates asbestos inspections, project notifications, demolition notifications, and emission-control procedures for asbestos removal and disposal.
Because of the microscopic nature of asbestos fibers, once airborne they can be easily inhaled leading to disease. Before starting your project, contact a Missouri-certified asbestos inspector if you intend to demolish or renovate building material that may contain asbestos. If removal or major repairs are needed people trained and qualified in handling asbestos should be contacted.
