The City of Owatonna Engineering Department recently transitioned to an online system, OpenGov, for Grading Permits.
If you experience difficulties or have a suggestion for improvements, please call our office, 507-444-4350, and we will work with you to complete the permit application and will note any improvement suggestions.
Some helpful tips when applying for a Grading Permit:
Make sure to add any guests to the record that you feel should be included in the permitting and review process. (Engineer, project owner, inspector, etc.…)
If an error is made when completing an application and is realized afterwards, please comment the corrections on the record and staff will make the adjustment.
