Any earth-moving inside the corporate limits of Porter must be permitted by the Town. The Town does inspections and has the authority to inspect any possible violation that it determines. Any work you are contracted to do must be permitted through the Town Building Department. Call 219-395-9921 if you have any questions. Call Holey Moley at 811 before any digging to ensure underground services are not impacted. YOU are held responsible if you hit something, not the homeowner.
