Online Permits and Licenses 

South Hadley uses online permit and license tracking via Viewpermit. It's an online based system that allows the public to apply and track the permitting and licensing process from start to finish.
First-time users must create an account in ViewPermit. You may then apply for (or renew) a permit or license, and pay using a debit or credit card (2.2% + 30¢ fee) or Paypal account (2.9% + 30¢ fee). You may also print your application and mail payment. You will receive email updates of the progress of your application. In many cases, your permit or license will be emailed to you once approved. Tag sale permits can be printed immediately from your home.    
The town is working hard to make all permits and licenses available through the ViewPermit system. Below is the list of what is currently available.
