Next day inspection requests must be submitted before 3:30 p.m. the previous business day.
Inspections are conducted between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday.

Inspections are conducted to ensure that a project is in compliance with City ordinances and state regulations. The initial inspection costs are included in the permit fee. Inspector’s will call from an unlisted/private number. Please ensure that the point of contact for the inspection answers all calls the day of inspection.

At the completion of each inspection, the Inspector will upload inspection results on MyGovernmentOnline. The status of all your inspections, permits, and plan reviews can be viewed by accessing your Account -> My Permits -> View -> Requirements. If your inspection requires a correction, that item must be corrected and re-inspected again for compliance before the project can proceed. If an inspection has failed, a $120.00 re-inspection fee will be due. The re-inspection fee must be paid prior to rescheduling the re-inspection.
