Online Permit System

 Note: Our online permit system is currently limited to checking permit statuses only. Check the status of a permit by going to the Check Permit Status page.

Keep checking this page in the future when new features, such as applying for permits online, become active.

Payment Disclaimer

The City of Dayton must make all applicants aware that you will be processing your credit card information on Verisign's secure site. The City of Dayton has done due diligence to protect your identity as well as your credit card information. You will notice a Verisign logo when processing your credit card transaction. All data is encrypted and secure. As a rule of thumb, you should always verify any credit card purchases.
