Tips on Scheduling Inspections

  • Please call Joanne or Robin in the Building Department to request an inspection.
  • Be sure to have the block, lot and permit number ready when you call in order to expedite your request.
  • Do not schedule inspections with Inspectors. The Building Department Technical Assistants are responsible for scheduling. You are not guaranteed an inspection if you try to schedule with an inspector directly.
  • Please call at least 24 hours in advance to schedule inspections.
  • If you fail an inspection, call the office for a re-inspection. Do not schedule a re-inspection with the Inspector.
  • Inspections are not performed on Saturdays or legal holidays when the offices are closed.
  • Please have the permit placard clearly posted and the property clearly labeled so that the inspectors can easily find your site.
  • Please be sure to have a place where inspectors can leave inspection stickers. This is especially important for new construction. Be sure to have a job board erected.
  • Please retain your inspection stickers until the project is complete and a Certificate is issued.
