IMS - Available Online - 500 Opens in new windowThe City of Blaine is now using a new online permitting application system called Intuitive Municipal Solutions (iMS). The new system will require residents and contractors to submit applications and payments online and allow you to view previously issued permits and receive immediate feedback on applications. 

In addition, iMS users are able to: 

  • Apply for a business license
  • Apply for a contractor license
  • Register as a contractor
  • Report a concern/complaint
  • View property information
  • View planning projects
  • File a code enforcement report

New users to the system just need to create an account in the system and begin the process.

All new permit applications need to be submitted through iMS.
