New Online Permit System Gets Minnesota Building Faster
As part of the Dayton administration’s continued efforts to Build a Better Government for a Better Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) announced today that eTRAKiT, the agency’s new online permit system, has dramatically improved the efficiency of issuing permits.
Since implementing the system a year ago, the staff time required to issue electrical permits has been cut in half and the time to process permits has been reduced by 90 percent. Permits that used to take up to 6 weeks to process are now issued either instantly or within 3 days.
With the proven success of using eTRAKiT to apply for electrical permits, DLI is now working to implement the online permit service for all construction codes and licensing disciplines, such as building, elevators, mechanical and plumbing.
