Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and Governor's order, we strongly encourage you to make your application online instead of visiting City Hall at our temporary location at SMSU. If you have questions or need help, please call 507-537-6773 and we will assist you.

The City of Marshall has changed the permit application process. In order to improve customer service and simplify all permit application process, the City of Marshall has now placed all most common permit applications on its website. For each permit type, our website provides two versions: PDF (printable) and electronic (online). Incomplete applications may result in requests for additional information and delayed permits. Please read all instructions carefully before starting. If you have any questions, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page or give us a call at (507) 537-6773 and we will be happy to help.

All permit application forms shall be filled out prior to starting any related activity.

Non-building permits, such as excavation, driveway, and sanitary sewer permit applications are also available. However, unlike for building and plumbing permits, the fees for these permits shall be paid online at the time of the application.

At this time, applications for moving houses into town permit, moving on public right-of-way permit, private use of public street permit, variance permit and conditional use permit are not available on-line; please stop by the Engineering Department at 344 West Main Street to fill out those applications.
