OHIO SPECIAL HAULING PERMITS
FAX NUMBER CHECKING
Beginning with the July 9, 2007 version, the system will edit check the fax number the user inputs on the "submit / payment page".
The system checks the area code and the full fax number against a list of known incorrect numbers submitted by permit customers over the last 4 years. The system does NOT dial the number for validation, but only checks these historic invalid numbers.
If you enter an invalid number that the system does not know about, it will pass the edit check initially, but it will be "flagged" within 30 minutes of attempting to fax to that number.
If a number, which you believe is valid, is "flagged", call the Permit Office immediately (614-351-2862).
This edit checking will improve your permit processing throughput by eliminating unnecessary revisions. It will also eliminate almost all of the nuisance calls our fax system generates to private residences
