Schedule an Inspection Online

Fill out the form below or call the phone number to the right to request an inspection. Inspectors try to respond within 24 hours on normal business days.

You will need to specify the date of the inspection, the permit number, type of inspection, site address, a contact name and phone number where you can be reached. Please be prepared with this information.

If you make your request before 7:00am, the inspector can perform the inspection that same workday. To avoid being bumped to the next workday as a result of a high number of requests do not wait to the last minute to make your request. If we cannot accommodate your requested day, you will get a call.  You may also request either a morning (before Noon) or after Noon inspection for which we will do our best to accommodate (no guarantee).

We appreciate your assistance in helping us prevent unnecessary trips by making sure you are ready for an inspection and the area to be inspected is accessible.

IMPORTANT: Always have your City approved plans (stamped, intact with attachments) and permit card on site for each inspection.
