2 – Mechanical/Plumbing Inspections
3 – Concrete Inspections
4 – Electrical Meter Sets

Most inspections will be performed on the workday following the inspection request if received before 2 p.m. or you may request that the inspection be scheduled for a later date.
Concrete Inspections Concrete inspections are high priority. When footings, foundation wall or structural slab inspections are needed on the same day that the request is being made, please call as early in the day as possible. However if you call for an inspection and the work is not completed when the inspector shows up, the inspection will be failed and a reinspection must be scheduled.
Re-InspectionsIf deficiencies are found during an inspection, a correction list will either be left at the job site or can be viewed on the Customer Self Serve portal. All items on a correction notice must be corrected before a request for a reinspection is made. Reinspection requests should be made in the same manner as other inspections and will be responded to as previously outlined.
Reinspection FeesIf a second reinspection is required, a fee will be incurred. Please see the fee schedule for pricing. No deficient item noted on an inspection report which requires approval shall be concealed or covered until approval has been received on an inspection report.
Noncompletion of WorkIf work has not been completed for a requested inspection when the inspector arrives at the job site, the inspector may fail the inspection and a reinspection fee may be assessed.
Certificate of Occupancy Required: Final InspectionNo building or structure shall be used or occupied until a final inspection has been performed by the Building Department and a Certificate of Occupancy has been issued.
A Temporary Certificate of Occupancy may be granted by the Building Official if it is determined that no significant hazard will result from occupancy of a building or portion of a building or structure after a final fire inspection has been performed.
