About MyGov

The City of Manitowoc has implemented MyGov, a permitting and inspections software program 
that also offers a User (Collaborator) Portal for Contractors or their Agents to apply and pay online 
for permitted projects, access permit information, schedule inspections, and see the status of their projects. The User (Collaborator) account is unique to the applicant / agent or contractor’s email.
