All contractors performing construction work in Manchester must be registered with the City of Manchester as well as
the Iowa Division of Labor. Without the appropriate licensing as issued by the State of Iowa, contractors will not be
allowed to secure permits or work within the City of Manchester. State of Iowa Registration information is available
online at Iowa Division of Labor www.iowadivisionoflabor.gov/contractor-registration.
A permit is required for any construction that physically changes or adds structure to a property, or for work regulated
by City code of ordinances. Before you begin a project it is important that you become familiar with all of the City of
Manchester building and zoning regulations that apply to your project.
Permit applications can be emailed to email@example.com or dropped off at the City Office.
