The McLeod County Highway Department has implemented an online electronic permitting application for all of its permits, including Right of Way (utility or special use), Transportation (annual and single trip moves), and Access/Entrance permits.
The paper form of the old permit applications will no longer be available. Permit applications will only be accepted through the ePermitting application. The ePermitting application will provide more efficient and timely processing of permit applications. It will also allow Users to print permits directly from their computers.
You are required to possess a user account to submit an application for the above mentioned permits. Setting up a user account is free. You must submit a valid email address to create a user account. It is recommended that you create one user account for your agency.
