Where are permits issued and how long does it take?
Permits are issued from the Building Department. Permit applications may be obtained at the Building Department or online, and may be returned by fax to 316-322-4450, scanned and emailed to Scott Pechin, Building Official, or through the mail to:
Building Department
216 N. Vine St.
El Dorado, KS 67042

Permit issuance periods vary. Permits that do not require the submittal of any drawings or documentation can be issued over the phone to contractors who are registered with the city. Some permits may be issued over the counter, provided all required submittals are included with permit application. Other projects, new buildings for instance, require that plans be left for additional review. For most residential structures, this review should be completed within a few days. Plan review for commercial buildings could take up to 2 weeks to complete.
