No permit is required for a fence. Fences and walls within yards shall not exceed 8 feet in the rear yard. A fence in the front yard shall not exceed 4 feet. Fences shall not be placed in such a way as to obstruct the vision of motorist. No fences, other than open split rail fence or barbed wire fence, shall be built in any 100-year flood plain area.
