Building / Demolition Guidelines
If you are planning a construction or demolition project, you must submit an Application for a Building Permit or Application for a Demolition Permit. The permit will be placed on the Planning Commission’s agenda. If you reside anywhere other than a residential district the permit will then be forwarded to the Board of Trustees for their action at their monthly meeting.

The Board of Trustees meet the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. Items not requiring a Building Permit are temporary dog kennels, sidewalks, driveways, cement patio’s, and concrete slabs. A shed 150 square feet or less does not require a permit but does need to meet setbacks. A permit is required prior to cutting into street curbs. A fence is required for any pool, spa, or hot tub containing at least 18” of water.
The village dump is available for use by Mead residents only! The only items allowed are weeds, tree branches, leaves and grass clippings. All items must be unbagged. There is also a roll-off available for discarded metal/iron products. Please follow these guidelines to meet NDEE regulations.

MEAD STORM WARNING PROCEEDURES
In case of severe weather, the fire siren will be sounded and go up and down a few times. This is only to alert members of the Fire Department to be on the watch. It is also a good idea to keep tuned to a local tv channel or radio station if we are in a watch area. Residents can also receive updates and follow the storm’s path on their cell phones, laptops, or computers.
If a funnel is actually spotted, the Fire Department will sound a steady blast on the siren. This is your signal to take cover at once. For those residents or businesses without basements, go to the Alma Lutheran Church basement, 219 W. Fifth Street. A member of the Fire Department will have the door open if we are in a storm warning.
