Current Permitting Protocol
If you are retrieving Planning & Zoning documents for completion from the county's website, please follow these instructions: Once application is completed, scan it and email document(s) to me at I will then process, generate an invoice, and email that invoice to you. You may then either mail a check or bring payment to the courthouse. If you are delivering application to the courthouse, an "In" basket is provided to you on a table in the hallway of the courthouse. Once payment is received, I will issue permit and it will be placed, with your receipt, from a "Pick-Up" basket, also located on the table, and notify you that it is ready for pick up. Please contact our office at 270-586-3356 if you have any questions or if you are unable to email documents. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we implement this protocol for which there is no precedent.
