Inspections must be scheduled by 3:30 PM the day before the inspection is needed, or by 3:30 PM on the last business day of the week, if requesting a Monday inspection.

Use the Online Inspection Scheduling button (above). Please provide all requested information and check the box or boxes corresponding with the type of inspection needed.

Multiple inspection types can be requested for the same time.

Our inspectors try to accommodate specific time requests for concrete pours. Please add the pour time in the notes section.

Inspection reminder - All permits that have been issued for those decks, pools, or basements need to have the final inspection completed to close out the permit. Please use the new OpenGov portal button on this page to schedule your inspection now.
