Any work which does not meet the standards contained in the applicable Building Code shall be corrected within a reasonable time specified by the Building Inspector or his authorized representative. A re-inspection shall then be made at no additional fee. If the inspections cannot be performed when the inspector arrives on the scheduled day due to (corrections not completed, not ready, locked out, no approves plans on sites, etc…) a re-inspection fee will be applied to the permit as posted in our Administrative Code.

When all inspections are completed and approved, a Certificate Of Occupancy will be issued. Occupancy shall not take place prior to the issuance of the Certificate.
