Permit Applications

The City of Webster City has contracted Safe Buildings to complete our inspections until we fill the current opening of City Building Inspector.

All permit applications can be completed online via our website and they will be directed to Webster City Community Director, Ariel Bertran as well as the office of Safe Building. Walk-ins are still welcome, but to streamline the process and make it as efficient as possible, online is preferred.

Inspections will need to be scheduled with Safe Building and notification of inspection is needed 48-hours in advance. To schedule your inspection please email office@safebuildingiowa.com or call (515) 333-4161.

We understand that this is going to be a new process and appreciate your patience while we navigate this transition.


Please select a Permit Application from the list below and submit online when completed. A few of the applications require you to upload additional documentation before submitting the completed application.

​After an application is submitted, the applicant must contact the Inspection Department the next business day to verify that the application was received, confirm the permit fee, and to schedule the permit pick up.

NOTE: The following forms should not be considered the final permit and are only application worksheets. The actual permit will be issued by the City of Webster City Inspection Department located at City Hall.
