- What is a permit?
- A permit grants the holder authorization to perform specific construction and/or installation work. Permits are assigned a unique document number which is required when requesting inspections and approval of the work.
- What to do when you purchase your permit?
- When you have applied for your permit and paid the required fee, work can begin.
- When you are ready for an inspection you must call our inspection line (1-800-839-9239) or visit our Web site to schedule your inspection. If your inspection has passed its final, your job is considered complete.
- If the inspector notes deficiencies during the inspection that cannot be fixed immediately, corrections must be made. You must call the inspection line or visit our Web site to schedule a re-inspection.*
- *Any outstanding inspection fees must be paid prior to scheduling a re-inspection. A re-inspection fee of $65.00 may be charged on Electrical, HVAC, and Plumbing permits.
