Inspection Announcement

Beginning Monday, July 9, 2018, a simplified list of Inspection Code Numbers will be used for all new and existing Building Permits. This change will streamline the building inspection process. The process for scheduling inspections will remain the same, except for the new inspection codes.   

  • Orange inspection cards: For commercial permits
  • Green inspection cards: For residential permits

Example: Jobsite Inspection Record 

If you have any questions, please Contact Us.



All building permits require an inspection conducted by our trained, professional inspectors to review:

  • footings, foundation, and plumbing
  • mechanical, electrical, and structural frames
  • insulation, lathe, and drywall

Building inspections ensure construction meets all municipal ordinances and state building codes and new or remodeled buildings are constructed according to the plans approved by the Community Development Department.


Scheduling Process

A ladder must be on the jobsite for the Building Inspector's use.

Use 'Schedule Online Inspection" link below or call 24-hour automated phone line.

Request inspections for the next working day prior to 3 p.m. Calls made after 3 p.m. will be scheduled for the second working day following. To be contacted by the inspector prior to inspection, please leave a detailed message, Building Permit number, and contact number for your inspector. 

For more information, please contact the Building Division.
