NOTICE: Effective January 1, 2017, Fulton County Planning and Community Services will be making the following operational changes.
First, Fulton County will no longer accept credit card payments over the phone. ¬† All credit card charges will need to be processed in person in our office with the credit card in hand. ¬† This procedure change is due to increased overall usage of credit cards to pay permitting fees, increased security concerns, and higher credit card transaction fees for unsecured (phone) charges.
Second, the Permitting Counter Open Hours will be changing due to staffing changes. Effective January 1, 2017, the Permitting Counter hours will be Monday - Friday, 8:30am to 4:00pm.
