    City of Fort Atkinson to implement online permit portal

    The City of Fort Atkinson has implemented a new online building and zoning permit application process. The new software will make it easier for contractors and residents alike to apply for permits online and increase contractor and citizen engagement. The online portal provides contractors and citizens with tools to submit forms, manage applications, review a permit status, request inspections, upload documents and images, and make payments in a convenient online location.

    In order to manage development and redevelopment in the community, government agencies administer zoning and building codes and regulations for land use. Most agencies are managing this process with paper documents and moving them from department to department. This is ineffective, disorganized and takes more time than necessary. The development community, individual property owners and City staff will save valuable time with the implementation of this new process.

    “With the help of iWorQ’s Online Portal we’ve been able to streamline the zoning permit application process while ensuring compliance with regulations. It helps the permit application process be more efficient and faster,” said Jedidiah Draeger, Building Inspector and Zoning Administrator for the City of Fort Atkinson. “The new service will make the process easier for citizens and contractors and also offer the ability to pay online, which we haven’t offered in the past.”

    The new iWorQ program will track a permit application, through inspection all the way to occupancy and allow staff efficiencies in the permitting process. To access the new permit portal please visit: www.fortatkinsonwi.gov/iWorQOnlinePortal.
