Due to the May 22nd 2011 storm damage on the Northside the demand for service has increased. We ask that you take this into consideration when requesting a permit inspection as we have reassigned many of our inspectors to assist the Northside. We are committed to honoring all requests but our response time to your request maybe impacted due to this disaster. Thank you.
