Electrical License Contemporaneous Review Guidelines

You may print and complete all pages of the building permit application and return them to the Town of Bennett in person or by mail. You may also complete the electronic form and return by email.  Send the completed application to the Town of Bennett Building Department by:

  •     hand delivery (during regular business hours)
  •     USPS - mail (207 Muegge Way, Bennett 80102)
