Building Permits / Inspections

Metro West Inspection Services work on an outdoor projectNotice

As we will be closing City Hall off to public access starting March 23rd until further notice, I wanted to provide some direction for how permitting/inspections will be handled for now.


Permit applications may be emailed to us at permits@ci.becker.mn.us, mailed, or placed in the dropbox inside City Hall (labeled building permit dropbox). Large plan sets, such as home plans, still need to be dropped off at City Hall with a digital version emailed.

Permits will be processed as usual with the expectation that they may take a bit longer than usual due to changes in internal procedures to ensure employee health and safety. 

After permit review/issuance, staff will inform applicants of fees as usual. Fee may be mailed or paid over the phone with a credit card. To pick up paid permits, staff will place the paid permit in the building permit pick-up box inside City Hall or small plan sets may be emailed. Please remember to wash/sanitize hands after handling any submittals. 

As of now, inspections will continue as usual. To schedule an inspection, call Metro West at 763-479-1720.

This is all very fluid and may change in the near future as the situation progresses. Some people will be upset about a change in processes but we feel this is the best move for this unprecedented time. We will do our best to provide our usual high-quality service in as timely a manner as we can.

Thanks, Marie Pflipsen
