The Building Department is now able to perform all inspections inside homes. Remote video inspections are still available upon request.

Exceptions and/or emergencies will be evaluated on a case by case basis to ensure public health and safety. This plan is to minimize exposure between City employees and the public, as requested by public health officials for social distancing.
