The Ottawa County Road Commission now accepts credit card payments both online and in person for residential driveway permits. A 3-percent convenience fee will be automatically added to your order total for credit card payments.
Please note: If you are submitting a $1,000 bond, an actual bond must be submitted separately and cannot be paid for by credit card.
The Special Services Department reviews and administers all permit applications. A permit is required from the Road Commission for any and all work being conducted within the road right-of-way, including utilities, and oversize and overweight vehicles.
Documents related to permit applications for residential driveways are found below. They should be completed in accordance with our Procedures and Regulations for Permitted Activities, and then returned to the Special Services Department for review.
