MARATHON, FL – Beginning Feb. 4, 2019, the Monroe County Building Department will provide a notification to permit holders and primary contractors 30 days prior to a permit expiration date.

The 30-day expiration notifications will be via email and phone, when phone numbers are within the United States. The County will be using the email addresses and phone numbers provided on permit applications.

The Florida Building Code requires the County to expire permits if there has not been a passed inspection within the past 6 months.

The automated telephone call and email will note the following:

Permit number – for example,  1810001 – will be expiring in 30 calendar days unless a passed required inspection is obtained.

To prevent this permit from expiring, you must either obtain a passed inspection result on a required inspection or submit a 180-day Permit Extension Request Form, found on the Monroe County Building forms webpage:, along with $250 before the permit expires.

Please contact our staff dedicated to answering your questions regarding this issue at 305-295-3993, Monday thorugh Friday, 1 to 3:15 pm.

This courtesy automated service is programmed to run daily, Sunday through Saturday, from 1 to 2:15 p.m.
