Inspection Services Procedures
Commercial Inspections: Inspections will proceed as requested by contractors. Inspectors will provide 10 minutes advance notice of arrival to the site so areas to be inspected may be cleared of workers. Up to two (2) site managers may accompany the inspector for the inspection if desired. All individuals on site must remain a minimum of ten feet from the inspector at all times. Failure to clear the area needing inspection or maintain adequate distance from the inspector will result in a failed inspection and the inspector leaving the site immediately.
Residential Inspections: One (1) individual may accompany the inspector for the inspection if desired. Children, individuals not accompanying the inspector, and pets shall remain in a fully separated space away from the inspector for the duration of the inspection. Failure to clear the area under construction or maintain adequate distance from the inspector will result in a failed inspection and the inspector leaving the site immediately.

Plans are reviewed and permits are issued with conditional approval within the restrictions of State and City codes.
Inspections are made at various stages of construction. For each inspection made, a computer report is entered.

Property files are public record and open for public inspection during regular office hours.
