As of March 17, Building Officials and Enforcement Officers will not be conducting inspections within an occupied dwelling for Building Permits and Property Standards. This temporary halt to inspections will continue through Friday April 3 and will be continually reassessed. The City will continue to maintain safety by responding to all emergency or unsafe conditions, and offer all other types of inspections during regular inspection hours, until further notice.
