PROCEDURE FOR CONTEMPORANEOUS REVIEWS OF ELECTRICAL AND PLUMBING LICENSES
PROCEDURES DUE TO COVID -19
PERMITS: Permits shall still be required and issued during this time. Please contact the Building Department to verify procedures for payment, and for procedures for plan submittals and obtaining necessary documents when a permit is cleared to be issued.
INSPECTIONS: With the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, the following procedures have been implemented: Exterior inspections (roofs, decks, siding, etc.), non-occupied residential (new single-family homes), and new commercial construction projects will continue to be inspected. No one may be on site with the inspector at the time of inspection. The inspector will ask that any working personnel temporarily leave the site and that any in-person communication always maintains the minimum 6 ft. recommended separation distance. We will not be entering occupied homes to conduct inspections. We will implement other methods of inspection, such as video/picture inspections on a case-by-case determination. An inspector will speak with you to determine if your project will qualify for this type of inspection when the inspection request is received.
VIDEO INSPECTIONS: Homeowner/contractor will capture video on standard .mp4 format as used by most cell phones. Contact with the inspector will be made prior, to verify the project meets requirements to be inspected via video. The video will be sent to the inspector via email or text message. Inspector shall assess the video and ask for additional footage to be filmed if the scope of work isn’t able to be determined from the initial video. In some cases, live feed video may be necessary. The inspector and contractor/homeowner will determine which platform can be used for each party. (Examples: Facetime, Zoom, Skype, etc.…)
