The Road Commission now accepts credit card payments for permits. A permit is not valid until you receive the permit back with a signature and permit number.

Your credit card will automatically be charged a 3% processing fee (or minimum of $2.50) in addition to the cost of the permit.

        


A Right-of-Way permit is needed anytime a private citizen or contractor performs work within the road right-of-way (typically 33 feet on each side from center of road) including driveways (new installation or resurfacing), tree trimming or utility work.
