Help Me Decide
Do you need help deciding what permit to apply for? Here are some helpful tools.
For smaller HVAC, Plumbing, or Electrical projects which are not associated with an integrated permit, an application is not required. However, the City may still require an inspection for the work.
Some examples of these would be, but not limited to the following: Water Heaters, HVAC replacements, New Electrical Services, Electrical Panel Changes, Wiring Repairs, Stack Replacements, and Sewer Lateral Repairs (not associated with the Sewer Lateral Program).
Once you know the inspection date, there are two options to schedule the inspection:
- Call our office at 636-949-3222 to pull what we call a “charge permit” and schedule the inspection. You can pay over the phone at the time.
- Create a profile and apply through a portal: https://esuite.stcharlescitymo.gov/esuite.permits/
There is a $50.00 fee per inspection required.
For building permit projects that do not fall under the above mentioned charge permit category, please visit the Building Department page here https://www.stcharlescitymo.gov/1035/Online-Permitting
Some examples of these would be, but not limited to the following: Decks, Basement Finishes, Interior Remodels, Additions, Pools, Accessory Structures, Retaining Walls, New Construction, Signs, Cell Towers and Solar Panels.
