NOTICE - Limitations on availability of scheduled building and electrical inspections:
For multiple legitimate reasons we are continuing to experience limitations in our capacity to perform building and electrical inspections. We do anticipate this condition to continue for a period of time. In order to ensure we are scheduling inspections and setting inspector workload that is achievable and sustainable, we will be adjusting the number of inspections that can be scheduled in the system to match our capacity. Please be sure to include adequate time to schedule and receive inspections for your project. We are working with the resources we have to maximize inspection capacity, however it is possible that a late received inspection request may not be completed in the timeframe requested.
In-person services are offered by appointment and during specific walk-in hours. Please read below for more information.
