Pool Permit Information

The Village has received several questions about the minimum size pool that requires a permit to put up.

Per Casper Manheim, Village Building Inspector:

A pool (both permanent or temporary) that holds 1,000 gallons of water, is 24in (2ft) or taller, and has a diameter of 10ft requires a permit for installation.

Please note, any pool between 24in-48in tall also needs a fence or barrier around it per the municipal code. A pool that is 48in tall or taller can be considered it’s own barrier.

If residents have questions about whether or not their pool meets these criteria, please contact Casper before you install and fill the pool at 815-440-2146
