Marysville offers online residential permit payments

MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville has expanded its menu of online pay services to include online residential building permitting.

The Community Development Department has gone live with eTRAKiT software developed by CRW Systems, Inc., based in Carlsbad, Calif. This system enables the city of Marysville to streamline permit tracking while giving the public a secure, user-friendly interface to pay for some permits online, as well as access to other helpful project features.

"We'd received many requests to offer online permits through our contractors, and are pleased to be able to provide this service," said Gloria Hirashima, chief administrative officer and community development director for the city of Marysville. "We recognize that our customers want web-based services, as it represents time and money savings for all of us."

Contractors and citizens will be able to:

• Apply for some permits online.

• Review projects.

• Schedule inspections.

• Conduct property searches.

Types of permits include single or multiple electrical, low voltage electrical, mechanical, plumbing and re-roofing. Instructions are available online, but visitors can also call the city's Community Development Department at 360-363-8223 or email MSVLPermits@marysvillewa.gov for help. Inspection requests can be submitted through the online permit center, or you can call 360-363-8204 to request an inspection.

Las year, Community Development issued 1,877 building permits, 236 single-family residential permits and 2,720 electrical permits, and performed 10,456 inspections.

Citizens were already able to register and pay their city utility bills — such as water, sewer and garbage — as well as fees for city Parks and Recreation classes and facilities rentals, through ePlay online.
