Building Permits

House Under Construction
At the present time, Riley County does not have building codes. However, a building permit application shall be made and a permit obtained prior to the start of any construction, moving, remodeling, or reconstruction of any structure which will increase the footprint of the ground. The fees for a building permit are as follows:
Single Family Residence - $150;
Commercial/Industrial Building - $225;
Accessory Structure (Residential) - $150;
Accessory Structure (Commercial) $225.

More information can be found in the Guide to Building.

*A separate building permit is required for each category; however, if a principal structure and an accessory structure are constructed simultaneously, the total fee for the two permits shall be $50 above the permit fee for the principal structure. In the event construction is commenced prior to the issuance of a building permit, the permit fee shall be doubled to compensate for the direct costs and additional staff costs involved in enforcement activities.
