No paper applications, plans or visits to the Municipal Center Office will be required.

Inspections are conducted Monday – Friday 8 AM to 4 PM except for Holidays.  

When requesting inspections, please indicate the type of inspection needed and the AM or PM slot in the notes section. Our inspectors will attempt to accommodate time requests, but no guarantees can be made. Requests must be received by staff by 3:30 PM the prior business day. Requests for same day inspections or requests received over the week-end will be performed only if the inspector’s workload permits. 

If an inspection cannot be conducted on the requested day, it will be scheduled for the next available business day.
