City of Dyer... A Place to Call Home!

In City of Dyer, we are defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. Small town values, guided growth, preservation of historical, cultural, and natural heritage are just a few of the core principles that make City of Dyer a wonderful place to call home. 


City of Dyer DOES have a permitting process: Please see definitions below.

Owner/Occupier – A person who owns structure and also occupies that structure

Landlord- A person who owns structure but does not occupy structure

Tennant/ renter- person who does NOT own structure but lives there

Minor Repair- Consist of fixing and clearing of stoppages in soil, waste, and supply lines; and restore defective valves, faucets and similar appliances to an efficient operating condition by any method other than connecting or disconnecting water source of existing water/sewer or natural gas system provide such repairs do not involve or require the replacement of new valves, pipes or fixtures. Such work shall be considered new work and shall require a plumbing licensed and inspections other than the reinstallation of existing water closets.

HVAC/ ELECTRICAL/PLUMBING/BUILDING / DRIVE WAY PERMITS are required for everyone. However, if you are an Owner/Occupier you can do your own repairs without a licensed professional but you still have to be permitted.

If you are a Landlord/Tennant/ Renter you have to permit and you MUST have a licensed professional to complete your work.
