Inspections Update

Effective April 15, 2020:

  • The Building Department is waiving the fee for “same-day” inspection requests. The goal of this and other initiatives will be to assist our stakeholders retain their respective workforce and promote continuous construction activity throughout the city.
  • Building inspectors begin their workday at 7 a.m, Monday through Friday. Earlier morning inspections make it easier to schedule construction activities and make more “after hours” inspections possible.


The mission of the Building Department is to provide the highest quality public service. Ever mindful of our duty to protect the public's life, health and welfare in the built environment, we are committed, at the same time, to providing a business-friendly atmosphere to our customers.

We are dedicated to providing qualified field inspections, convenient and easily accessible information and services, and accurate record-keeping. We believe that our "one-stop shopping" concept and automated services enhance our ability to respond in a timely fashion to requests for service. While keeping in mind each division's specific focus on part of the building process, the Building Department is committed to working as a team, uniting with other City departments to accomplish our goal of protecting and serving the citizens of this great City.
