When do I need a permit?
A building permit is required from the City of Olivette if: any building or structure is constructed, enlarged, altered or demolished; there is a change in the occupancy of any building or structure; there is a change in the use of any building or structure; or any equipment serving a building or structure is installed or altered (§500.070).

Sewer Lateral Program Details
The Owner of a single-family home, duplex, condominium building, or multi-family building containing not more than six (6) dwelling units may participate in the Olivette Sewer Lateral Program if the lateral sewer service line serving the property is found to be defective per the City of Olivette’s Residential Sanitary Sewer Lateral Repair Program Policy and Procedures governing this program. The policy and procedures stated in this document must be followed in order to participate in this program. By complying with procedures in this document the property owner may recover 80 percent of the authorized costs up to a maximum reimbursement of $3500.00.
Commercial and industrial properties cannot participate in the program. Multi-family and condominium developments that contain more than six (6) dwelling units per building are not eligible for this program.
A lateral sewer service line, which is eligible for the program, is a sewer line, which extends from three (3) feet outside of the building foundation wall or exterior wall to the sewer main in the street or sewer easement. It does not include a sewer line located under any part of any building or structure. A lateral sewer line may be located in a front, side, or rear yard.
Lateral sewer service lines that extend from three (3) feet outside of the building foundation wall or exterior wall to septic tanks are eligible; however, repairs to all mechanical, electrical & tank components and the drain field for a septic system are ineligible.
A defective lateral sewer service line is defined as a line that is not functioning properly due to one or more of the following reasons:
- Collapsed or broken to the extent that adequate flow is not permitted.
- Severe offset of a joint that does not permit adequate flow.
- Severe backfall or belly that does not permit adequate flow.
- Severe blockage that cannot be physically cleaned out.
Tree roots growing through the bells and joints of the pipe are not considered to cause the line to be deemed defective. Removal of the roots, which is a routine maintenance issue with older lateral sewer service lines, will allow the line to function properly.
