BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Brunswick County officials are rolling out a new program to make building applications easier to achieve.

Electronic forms are now available on Brunswick County's website.

The forms will allow developers to apply for permits online instead of making multiple trips to the government complex in Bolivia.

Brunswick County's Chief Building Inspector, Reggie Hucks says that the new process will streamline the process, making it quicker and more efficient for builders to get started in Brunswick County.

Currently, builders cannot pay online, but county employees have been looking at options and hope to offer that down the road.

"Builders are always looking to get homes started and since we started the online process, we have received 20-25 applications already and it's only been in place for a couple weeks," said Hucks. "So, that tells you right there, there is a demand for this."

When the application is submitted an email with all the documents is sent simultaneously to several people. The new system allows all the Brunswick County employees directly involved in the different aspects of the permitting process to view the different documents and notify each other electronically.

Applicants then receive a notice, letting them know whether or not the application has been approved. If approved, the applicant then comes to the county complex to sign forms, pay fees, and take care of any other last components.
