About Permits

The Butler County Engineer's Office requires permits for all work performed within a road's public right-of-way in order to maintain the integrity of the roadway system. Special Hauling Permits are also required for overweight vehicles.

Permits are issued by the BCEO for the County road network and all 13 townships, since the County Engineer functions as the engineer for the townships. Allocated for residential and commercial purposes, there is no charge to obtain a permit.

The following forms can be found on the Permit Application Forms page:

Driveway Permit Application
Driveway permits provide private access to the public road system. These permits also ensure that driveway pipes are installed per County standards. Note: Driveway permits are subject to the Butler County Access Management Regulations effective 1/1/2005.
Right-of-Way Permit Application
Right-of-Way Permits are most often issued for piped frontages -- areas where property owners elect to install pipe in ditch lines to make them more attractive, easier to mow, and less hazardous. These permits help protect the county drainage system and ensure that appropriate sized pipes are installed.
Utility Permit Application
Utility permits ensure that all utilities, such as phone, water, electric, gas, and cable, are installed in the proper areas of the public right-of-way. Safe construction and correct installation are required per standards directed by the County Engineer.
Special Hauling Permits
Special Hauling Permits give the County the opportunity to review overweight and oversized loads moving through Butler County. This ensures safe equipment and proper routing along the most appropriate roads in an effort to minimize potential damage to the roadway system. Link to Special Hauling Permits Application page.

All applications are reviewed and permits are issued provided the proposed work meets all County standards.
