When building a fence for your property, it is more than just to specify what you want and buy the material. Even when building the temporary fencing solution, you need to obtain a permit in order to build it in accordance with law.

All homeowners must apply for the permit, which will be accepted or rejected by the local municipality and jurisdiction. So, how do you know what you need in order to obtain it? How to start? Start by reading our article, where we will explain some basic things!

Each state applies a different law

It may happen that you do not even need the permit for building the fence, as this solely depends on the state and country you live in. While you may need a permit to build in in Oregon, it may happen that you do not need it all in NY. Different jurisdictions apply the different law and it also may happen that you need it only if you fence exceeds a certain height. If it does, you will be required to fill a 4-pages paper form in order to get the permission.

So, if you have a fence that is over 6 feet tall, you will definitely want to ask for permission prior to building it. Depending on the municipality, somewhere you might be required to apply the setback boundaries. Still, when you compare and try to make a general rule, you are required to ask for a permit in cities, while in the suburban areas you can build it without, regardless of the height.

Obtaining the permit

This can be a really exhausting process, as some states will ask you to show the draft, blueprints, photos or even a written permit from your neighbor. At some places, your neighbor might be the part of a financial plan, as he is ought to participate in financing the fence.

Obtaining the permit

If you are building it on your own, you will need a written agreement from your neighbor that you are financing the whole project on your own, so that he has a proof that is legally (not) obliged to participate in the project. This is generally a huge burden to cities, but they see it as a cheaper solution as it is not the municipal’s responsibility.

The best thing to do? Ask a company to get the permission

If you hire a professional fencing company and service, the best thing you can do is to leave them the paperwork. They are familiar with the law and regulations, so they know this better than you. In case you need a permit, they will obtain it for you and if not, they will tell you do not need one.

This saves a lot of time, but keep in mind that you pay the fee, and you also pay them for obtaining it for you. Also, have in mind that some companies do not do this, so ask them before you make any deal with them.

How to Order Weed Online in Canada?


The Canadian government spearheaded by their Prime Minister Justin Trudeau legalized the recreational use of marijuana in October 2018. The Legalization Act was passed to the government can control the production and sales of the plant. This was done so they could control marijuana-related crimes and make sure that underage citizens do not have access to the plant.

The legalization of the plant, in turn, led to a change in the economy and this branch of industry has seen a big rise in value. The professionals are estimating that the total worth of the industry will come up to a couple of billion and there is a lot of talk about foreign investment into weed production.

Severe punishments for those that hurt children

Severe punishments for those that hurt children

Punishing criminals according to their crimes is the purpose of the law. The fact that same punishment was given to people that hurt children and those who harm adults were always a sore spot for many people. Those that hurt children must receive harsher penalties because their victims are young and defenseless.

Increased awareness toward crimes against children

People are jumping up and taking notice of those who commit crimes against children. Not to say people didn’t notice before, but they are taking a tougher stance against these people, mainly because the issue has become so widely publicized.

A lot of awareness came to light in the wake of the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping and as other such cases started making national headlines. The media was even criticized many times for not covering several missing person stories. Suddenly the nation went from little news on the topic to an overwhelming demand for coverage.

Incidentally, this has led to tougher laws against people who hurt innocent children. In the Davis County town of Clinton, a city ordinance could ban convicted sex offenders from stepping foot on city property in an attempt prevent previous offenders from entering city parks as a precaution to protect children.

There is no going too far when it comes to protection of children

On a state level, in Florida, convicted sex offenders are now required to wear satellite-tracking devices for the rest of their lives. If they get too close to a school or any other restricted area, patrol officers of a local police department will instantly be notified by cellular phone or pager. Other states are beginning to follow suit.

Are we going too far? First we post their picture on the Internet, now we’re tracking their every move with satellites?

I don’t think it’s going too far at all.

Many people may argue that convicted sex offenders have already served their time in jail and that any further persecution should be considered double jeopardy. I argue on the side of technology and the rights of the public, most importantly I defend our children.

The cases of two registered sex offenders, arguing they were still being punished for their crimes by being tracked in an Internet registry, went before the U.S. Supreme Court two years ago. In both cases the court sided with the public and their rights to safety. After all, while it is the law in most states that offenders must register, many do not. There are over half-million convicted sex offenders in the United States and 15 percent of them, roughly the population of Washington County, have failed to register.

Tougher punishments are the best option

children punishmentsBecause every state has different laws on the issue, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch is working on tougher federal standards against sex offenders that include a national tracking system. Changes to the law would make failing to register a federal felony. Currently, registration is required for 10 years following prison release for first-time offenders. Proposed changes would require 20 years of registration and lifetime registration for second offenders. Hatch’s proposed changes would also require tracking devices for first-time offenders during the course of their supervised release and lifetime tracking for second-time offenders and violent predators.

Despite attempts by our corrections institutions, there is often no cure for those who harm our children. Through the advent of technology, we can give people the opportunity to change, but still keep a more watchful eye.
