Building Permit Summary Listing
This summary report of the City of Augusta Code Enforcement Building Permit database is in letter format and would normally fit on a ledger size format to use all information for that particular item. You can use the "Find" feature to search for items; examples: by address. map and lot, or other choices. Note: Demolition and Earth Fill Permits are towards the top of this report (see category). Also, most, but not all permits are listed on this summary. Report is in permit number order. Once you find those items, you can then e-mail me to get more details on a building permit, etc.
