Truman has adopted the
Minnesota State Building Code as its rules for construction. Building
setback and zoning information can be obtained at City Hall. All
construction, modification, or demolition requires a building permit. The
permit application is available for
download and completion. (You will need Adobe's free
to view and complete this application.) Requests for variance require a
special form. Due to the detailed instructions, this form is only
available in person at City Hall.
