The building inspector must have access to be inside to perform the inspection. It is your responsibility to call our office at (385) 468- 6688 between 7:30 and 8 am the morning of the inspection to make arrangements with the inspector. Failure to do so puts your business license on hold until we get all of the inspections finalized.
