Clark County Flood Repairs
Residents in the unincorporated portions of Clark County are reminded to obtain building permits for repairs to flood-damaged structures.
Residents of the unincorporated portions of Clark County are reminded with the recent disaster, many structures in the community may have experienced structural damage. Repairs and/or reconstruction activities to structures damaged due to the disaster that are located in the floodplain will require a local building permit from the Clark County Office of Planning & Zoning, as required by the Clark County Floodplain Ordinance. Failure to obtain the necessary permits can result in fines up to $2,500 per day, per violation. In addition, depending on a property’s location, a permit may be required from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources prior to the start of any reconstruction activity.
