Electrical Permits

On January 4, 2016 the Kalispell Building Department took over the issuance of electrical permits and electrical inspections, for both residential and commercial projects within the city limits, from the State of Montana.  Please note: Any of your projects that have a State electrical permit will be finished by the State electrical inspector.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  Due to a glitch in the system regarding security issues you will not be able to pay for your permits on-line at this time, though you will be able to apply for your permits on-line. Once the permit is submitted to the Kalispell Building Department, our Permit Technician will contact your office regarding the form of payment you choose to use. You can pay by credit card, mail us a check, or come into our office to pay for your permits.
