Permit Fees

Permits usually take up to 15 working days (3 weeks)  to process. The Building Department will notify the property owner by telephone when the permit is ready. All permits are to be picked up at the Village Clerk’s office, not the Building Department, at Village Hall, 16250 S. Oak Park Ave., Tinley Park. Payment is not required until the permit is picked up at the Clerk’s Office.
