Are you looking to have a fence installed in your backyard? According to the Villages’ website, the city of Mokena requires all residents to obtain a building permit before starting the fence installation process. Whether you are replacing an existing fence or having a new fence installed, it’s imperative that you get a permit for your next project. To start the process, you can visit the Villages’ website and download a PDF of the fence permit application. You will want to sign and complete the form and then return it to the Community Development Department. It’s also crucial that you contact the Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators (J.U.L.I.E.) at (800) 892 – 0123 before the fence company starts digging in your backyard. JULIE will send someone out to mark underground cables. The Village also requires that you use a fence contractor that is registered to complete fence installations in the city of Mokena. If you have additional questions about fence permits, you can contact the Village at (708) 479-3930.
The first step in the process is to complete the fence permit application. The Village of Mokena will ask you a series of questions about you as the homeowner and the proposed fence installation. You will need to provide necessary information like your name, address, phone number, etc. But they will also want to know the details about the new fence. You will have to answer questions regarding the proposed height of the fence, the style, and the materials the fence company plans to use during the installation process. If you plan to have a local fence company complete the work, you will need to provide the Village with their business name, address, and phone number as well. You want to verify that the fence contractor you’ve selected is registered to complete fence installations within the Village of Mokena.

We love our fence! Carmen was so nice and professional. He didn't even mind my excessive questions. The men that came to install the fence were so quick and professional. They made sure to keep me in the loop with a couple minor snags. They were resolved quickly and with my approval. I would highly recommend this company.
Jason & his entire team were amazing to work with. The team did a great job with my fence. As anyone should do, I reached out to multiple fence company’s and not only was Illinois Fence Company price the best, I never once felt like it was a sales pinch or forced into picking their product. To me the little things mean the most, whether it was being 100% transparent with re scheduling due to weather or for simply filling out the village fence application permit so that I could easily take it to my village for approval. Thanks again for the great work!
We are very happy with our decision to hire Illinois Fence Company to install our new cedar fence. Jason was very thorough, professional, transparent, and honest. He helped us evaluate different options, and ultimately decide on the best fence for us. Would highly recommend!
Jason showed up on the day of our scheduled appointment and provided an estimate the same day. I called him a couple times with questions which he answered behind going ahead with the proposal. NO sales pressure at all which was nice. Just courteous professional service. The crew came out on the scheduled day and removed the old fence and installed the new one. A 6 ft Cedar, with 5x5 posts that were set in concrete. Very sturdy, well built and very well installed
