The Building Department requires the person doing the work to call and request the required inspection.

Scheduling an Inspection

24 hour notice is required for all inspection requests. All attempts will be made to perform the inspection within 24 hours. This may not always be possible due to the large area we cover.

When an inspection is called in you will be given a morning or afternoon when requesting the inspection. Times will not be given except in special circumstances.

Inspections in the outlying areas of Denio, Kings River, McDermitt will be performed on Wednesdays.
