Permit Process

 

The following checklist is provided for your convenience to submit for a Permit:

 

Application Form: The Fire Permit Application shall be filled out completely and accurately. 
Application Form can be obtained at Boles Fire Protection District Headquarters at 2731 Highway T, Labadie, MO. 636-742-2515 or completed online.

Submit two (2) sets of construction documents (listed below) for review. Once the Permit is approved, one set will be returned to the permittee. This approved set will need to stay on the job site for use by our Inspectors until the final inspection and occupancy is approved.  To obtain an Occupancy Permit please click here.

Unless stated otherwise all construction plans, spec books and hydraulic calculations must be properly signed and sealed by the appropriate design professional.

For your convenience, Permit Fees can be paid by PayPal. Please be aware that paying online does not allow you to begin your project until fees collected are approved, you receive a hard copy permit and a returned stamped set of approved drawings by the Fire Marshall (or his designee) plus any immediate required inspections.
