The construction, repair or resurfacing of any accessory surface, including, but not limited to driveways, parking areas, sidewalks or walk ways, any of which that do not involve the construction of any portion of the same above the general grade, or which do not involve the alteration of any public street surface or curbing.
Any alteration or construction, not including plumbing or electrical work, which said alteration or construction has a cost of less than five hundred dollars ($500.00), including labor and material charges or expenses.
Notwithstanding, the above provisions (1 through 5) the following work shall require a permit:
Building permits must be conspicuously displayed on the front door of any premises being constructed or altered, or on the exterior of such structure in a location clearly visible from the front door.
