Can I start work without a permit?

No. Only an emergency that happens after hours or over the weekend can proceed without a permit, but you are required to obtain a permit within the next business day. Work conducted without a permit will be subject to a Stop Work Order or Notice of Code Violation and a penalty fee will be applied when the permit is issued per City Ordinance.
