Code Services

Inspection Procedure Changes, effective Nov. 2, 2020
Due to circumstances beyond our control, inspections will be somewhat limited for the foreseeable future.  We may not always be able to provide next-day service.  Please give us as much notice as possible when scheduling inspections.

Please be sure County Approved plans and site plan are on site for inspection.  If an inspection cannot be performed because plans are not on site, re-inspection fees will be assessed and be required to be paid before any further inspections will be performed.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this difficult time.

The code services department is assigned responsibility for enforcement of the codes and regulations related to construction and onsite wastewater systems, enforcement of regulations related to property maintenance and operation of three sewer treatment facilities. Compliance with the adopted codes and regulations is accomplished through reviewing plans and documents related to construction, periodic inspections of construction in progress, licensing of contractors and investigation of complaints.

The mission of the code services department is to protect the safety, health and welfare of the public and preserve property values through efficient, effective and reasonable enforcement of codes, standards and regulations relative to the construction and use of buildings and property.
