Notice to Permit Applicants - Escambia County is required to comply with Florida Construction Lien Laws and all applicable state laws concerning construction permit applications and permit issuance. A completed application is required before we can assign you a permit number. A completed application requires the notarized signature of the contractor making application. If you need notary assistance, we will be happy to provide this when a technician is available.
