TOWN OF MONUMENT MAIN ACCOUNT BUSINESS LICENSE MATCH POLICY FOR CASCADE

 The Town of Monument cannot have a main Cascade Account that does have matching Town of Monument Business License Account information. There are two options when setting up the main account within Cascade: 

  1. Preferably the Contractor doing the construction work on a construction project would be the one to set up the main account in Cascade. They would need to ensure they have a town of Monument Business License that matches their business name and address. If there are others such as an architect or other administrative company overseeing a project, they could be set up as a “User” under the main Contractor’s account (with their own password and ID).   
  2. Another option-If the main company who is representing all of the construction work for a project, wants the main account in Cascade to be in their name, they will need to apply for a Town of Monument Business license prior to setting up an account within Cascade. Then, if there are subcontractors doing work for this company (who also have a Town Business License), they could be set up as a “User” under the main account (with their own password and ID).  


Fees & Payment

 
Can be paid online within Cascade permitting software or in person at Town Hall.
Please keep in mind that location of the development may require additional fees, such as Triview. Visit the Maps page for the location maps of these districts.
