What if I don’t know all this information that the permit requests?

The City of Jenks recognizes that some of the legal and technical information that the permit requests might be confusing or unavailable to the homeowner. Our permit processors will help to acquire this information on any missing portions of the permit, with the understanding that this may delay the process slightly. Legal descriptions of your home can usually be acquired from a mortgage plat. Please work with your chosen shelter or safe room company/contractor to acquire as much information from them as possible. Some information, such as technical specifications, will need to be supplied by the shelter or safe room company.
