These applications can now be managed through the portal, including revisions. You will need to create an account in order to manage your record and make payments. If you have a balance due, you will receive an email containing payment instructions.
For previously submitted applications, prior to 1/19/2021, in a DENIED status, the applicant must submit a new application on the HillsGovHub portal and reference the original permit number. All required documents must be resubmitted in the new portal.
