***NOTICE****: Beginning November 1,2022, any permit that has exceeded the number of inspections associated with your permit will require payment of the additional inspection fee prior to the inspection being scheduled. This will be an automatic requirement when requested on the business portal or when requests are submitted via phone or email. The fee amount for additional inspections remains at $50.00. We are not assessing an additional fee for any inspection with a result of “phone, cancelled, waived, no work, or rescheduled”.
