What are the requirements for fences?

The City of Okmulgee does not require a permit or inspection for fences under six feet in height. The City of Okmulgee Zoning Code does restrict the maximum height of opaque fencing to three feet in front of a home and six feet behind the front of the home. Anything higher than six feet requires a permit.  Castle walls, moats, and sharks with lasers will not be permitted. It is recommended that fences be installed with the "smooth" side (the side that does show supporting posts or framing) facing outward,.
