How do I schedule an inspection?

Beginning January 2, 2020 you can schedule Building, Public Works and Fire Department inspections online through our website. We will continue to offer our 24-hour voicemail system by calling 360-863-4545 ext #1 for building to schedule an inspection.  Inspection requests must be made by 4:00 p.m. to be scheduled for the next day. Leave your name, contact phone number, site address, permit number, type of inspection, and am or pm* request. When pouring concrete, please specify the time of the pour.

All permits and approved plans are required to be on-site at the time of the inspection. All inspections must be called in, even if there is a Special Inspection Agency conducting the inspection.

*am - requests between the hours of 8:30 am and 12:00 noon

*pm - requests between the hours of 1:00 and 3:30 pm
