How long does it take to get a permit?

Once a permit application has been turned in to the City of Jenks at Jenks City Hall at the following address it needs a minimum of three working days to process the permit:
211 N Elm Street
Jenks, OK 74037   

This process may be delayed if more information is requested by the permit processors or due to an increased volume of applications. Once a permit is complete and ready to be issued, we will contact the person or company that has submitted the permit application.
