County officials announced the launching of Click2Gov, a new section on the County of Kaua’i’s Web site that enables homeowners to check the status of their building permits online.
Click2Gov eliminates the need for anyone who’s building a home on Kaua’i to drive to Lihu’e or call the various county divisions involved in the permitting process, county officials said.
Essentially, all the information regarding the permit status of residential projects on the island is now available on the Internet, and leaders with the County of Kaua’i are the first on the outer islands to offer this service.
“This addition to the county Web site is part of our overall efforts to enhance our services and make things better for the people of Kaua’i,” said Mayor Bryan J. Baptiste.
According to David Murray, a systems analyst with the County of Kaua’i’s Information Technology team who’s responsible for launching and maintaining Click2Gov, the new link is very easy to access.
“Just log on to egov.kauai.gov/Click2GovBP, type in your building permit application number, and you can access practically any information you’re interested in regarding your permit status,” said Murray.
On the status-detail page, basic information on a particular parcel is provided, such as the owner’s name, permit application date, what the property is valued at, and whether or not the application has been approved.
The application fees page indicates if a homeowner has paid the fees associated with the permitting process, or if there are any outstanding fees.
The inspection status page shows whether or not the required inspections have been done on the building project, while the plan-tracking status page displays in real time what stage a permit application is at in the review process.
