Scott Sadusky-Building Inspector

Building or Remodeling

A building permit may be required for the building or remodeling project you have planned.  A permit is required for new additions, remodeling, finishing a basement, re-roofing, re-siding, window replacement, decks, porches, plumbing, heating, electrical work, garages and more.  Please call City Hall or Scott Sadusky before you begin any project.  It's better to have your permit in place then to be fined for not having it. 

Scott Sadusky can be reached at 612-986-7644 or by email: ssadusky@hotmail.com 


Please submit your completed permit applications by email to adminassist@cityofcrosby.com. 

Permit application will be reviewed by appropriate officials. 

Once the permit application is approved, you will be notified of the dollar amount due to the city for the permit to be issued to begin your project. 

Questions, please contact city hall 218-546-5021.


 Building Permits

City Council enacts ordinances to regulate construction, maintenance, and remodeling so that the buildings where we live, work, and play will be safe.  The City uses permits to make sure that the work is done in compliance with those ordinances.

The City of Crosby enforces national and international building codes adopted by the State of Minnesota. These codes are available online.

Getting a building permit helps you to ensure that your project meets safety and building code standards and there is a penalty for starting construction prior to the issuance of a building permit.  Many building permits can be issued over the counter at City Hall and require very little wait time.

In addition to permits, please contact the Planning & Zoning Administrator, Brittney Cotner for information on set back requirements, lot coverage, fences, shoreland regulations and other useful information. Brittney can be reached at 218-541-5294 or email: planning@cityofcrosby.com

We encourage you to call with any questions regarding construction projects being considered before you begin.

The building permit must be filled out completely and submitted to City Hall.  The forms can be accessed on this page or picked up at City Hall.

The completed and signed building permit is sent to the Building Inspector for review and he will contact you directly with questions, or if additional information is required.
