It may be helpful to set up an account in our Online Reservation and Permit System. Once it's set up, note your username, exit the online system, and continue with the steps above to email us.
If you do not set one up, our staff will set one up for you using your email address as the username and your 10-digit phone number as the password. If you try to create an account and it says the phone # or email is already in use, we may have created an account for you in the past. Try logging in using your email as the username and your 10-digit phone number as the password (no hyphens). Need more help? Visit our reservation system Frequently Asked Questions webpage.
