PROCEDURES TO REQUEST A BUILDING INSPECTION

In order to manage the inspection requests for all of our open permits, we must ask that you follow the established procedures whenever possible. Because of the limited number of inspectors and the size of the territory that is covered, we are not able to set the time of the inspections.

Building inspections are performed Mondays through Fridays. Inspections may be requested either by phone or online and must be requested by 4:30 pm on a working day, in order to be scheduled on the following inspection day. We will make every effort to perform the requested inspection on the date requested, however there may be circumstances where that is not possible and you will be called to reschedule when this occurs.
