Building & Code Enforcement
Created in 1917, the Fire/Building Department is staffed by a fully qualified inspector, certified in all areas of the fire and building codes. An inspector examines both commercial & residential buildings for compliance with all applicable building, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, energy, fire and life-safety codes. Inspections are scheduled Monday-Thursday 8:AM-3:30PM. Once you receive your building permit, follow the list below to schedule inspections:

Call the city offices at: 458-5890, ext. 101 at least 24 hour in advance. Be sure to leave the following info:
*Owner’s name
*Contractor name (if applicable)
*Permit number (located in the upper right-hand corner)
*Address of property to be inspected
*Type of inspection (ie. Foundation, framing, electrical, etc)
*AM or PM requested
*Contact phone number

The building inspection card (job card) and a set of approved plans (stamped “approved” by the Building Department) must be posted at the job site.
A contact number should be provided in case of time or date change of inspection.
If an inspection is called for and the job is not complete, a re-inspection fee of $98.00 may be imposed.
ALL inspection sites must be properly addressed and clearly visible from the road for easy access. This is not only a building inspection request, but it is also necessary for the U.S. Mail, 911 emergency calls, and/or fire calls.

If all of the above procedures are not followed, your inspection may not be scheduled! To ensure you receive your inspection in a timely manner, be sure to follow the above list!
