The City of Benton City contracts its Building Department services to The Building Department, who is responsible for the review of building permit applications and works with the City for enforcement of applicable building codes. The Building Department conducts inspections and aids in planning and development review.
Many changes citizens make to their property require a permit. Please contact City Hall at 509-588-3322 to discuss your project with a staff member. They will be able to guide you to the correct permit application and explain the permitting process to you. Please take into account that it takes time to review permit applications, so most permits have at least a 5 day turnaround. Please plan your projects accordingly.
