Effective September 12, 2022 all Transportation, Utility, Right-of-way, & Driveway Permits will be processed by Oxcart, a third-party vendor. Please visit their website at www.oxcartpermits.com to sign up for an account. Please note: The Barry County Road Commission will not be processing permits past September 12, 2022 so ALL Transportation, Utility, Right-of-way, & Driveway Permits will ONLY be issued by using Oxcart Permits.
The Barry County Road Commission is responsible for processing a wide range of permits, including permits for driveways, road approaches, utilities and oversize loads and vehicles. This extensive process includes the review of permit applications and plans submitted by property owners, truckers, developers, public utility companies, and local units of government, as well as issuance of permits and on-site inspections.
Operations within the county road right-of-way other than normal vehicular or pedestrian travel require a permit when conducted by anyone other than BCRC personnel, BCRC agents, or BCRC contractors. The statutory authority of the BCRC to require compliance with permit requirements is predicated upon its jurisdictional authority and is set forth in various statutes.
