Generally fences are exempt from zoning regulations and therefore do not require a permit for construction. The only possible exception to this rule would be if the fence would create a vision obstruction at a street intersection. Check with the County Zoning Officer if there is a possible concern in this regard.
A building permit is required before the start of construction of any structure within the unincorporated areas of Riley County. The permit is necessary to verify that the zoning is proper for the intended use, the required setbacks from property lines are achieved, Sanitary Code requirements are met and other basic requirements of this type. The permit does not involve construction inspection since there is no adopted building code that applies to the unincorporated areas of the County.
