Prepare the Site for Inspection
Make certain that the Building Permit placard and the reviewed and stamped set of building plans and specifications are posted on the job site for the inspector. Failure to comply with this requirement will result in a FAILED inspection. A PASSING inspection will be signed on the Building Permit placard. A FAILED inspection will be recorded on a "Correction/Fail Notice" posted with the Building Permit placard. A re-inspection fee will be assessed to all FAILED inspections and must be paid prior to requesting a re-inspection.
