Permitting Process

Permitting Process

Please note that, at this time, walk-in permits are not accepted. You can email them to or drop them off in our dropbox located to the left of the front doors. Once your permit is processed and ready for pick-up, we will contact you to let you know it is ready and how much is due. No appointment is necessary at this time, but you will need to call when you get to City Hall and a mask is required to enter the building.

Please have your payment ready before you get to City Hall. Checks should already be filled out for the correct amount and made out to "City of Escalon". We would also appreciate it if you had your own pen to use to sign the permit.

Please do not enter our facility if you have any COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, trouble breathing, etc.), are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test, or have been advised to self-quarantine.

Applications are accepted in the office, by mail, fax or e-mail. Please send your completed application to:
