Inclement weather notice:
During unsafe driving conditions, certain inspections may not be completed on the day the inspections are scheduled. Inspections not performed will move to the next business day, which may cause a ripple effect on the schedule. Inspection staff will make an effort to contact the applicant or contractor affected by inspection cancelation. Priority will be given to work involving restoration of essential services (such as power, gas, heat or water). Outdoor inspections such as sewer laterals, foundations, grading, etc. may be moved to the next feasible day.
