To obtain a Moving Permit to move a building/structure, derrick, etc. on Ellis County roads, pick up the application at the Ellis County Clerk's office at 718 Main or visit ellisco.net under Department/Clerk to download. All utilities that are affected by the move will need to be notified by the mover. Present the permit to the Ellis County Clerk's office along with a $100 fee after meeting the requirements of notification. The County Clerk's office will then forward the request to Ellis County Public Works Road & Bridge Division for approval of the route. They will notify the Ellis County Clerk once they have authorized approval of the route. The Ellis County Clerk will then sign and seal the permit and forward onto the contractor/mover, who may then proceed with the move.
