OCS Update

November 18, 2020: Effective immediately, we are suspending all inspections of occupied dwellings. This will primarily effect furnace, water heater, air conditioner, and electrical service inspections. Mechanical, plumbing and electrical contractors will not receive final inspections for occupied residences until we are at a level with the pandemic that is considered more safe. Inspections may still be scheduled for businesses where social distancing can be maintained and certainly, all new construction projects.

In certain situations where it is crucial to conduct an inspection, the inspector may conduct a video inspection at the inspectors discretion. These instances will be evaluated case by case.

New commercial businesses are required to register and undergo zoning verification and building/fire safety inspections prior to opening for business to the general public. The one-time registration fee is $200.

Existing businesses are required to register and may be subject to inspection for any of the following reasons:

1. Change of ownership
2. Relocation to a different physical space
3. Expansion or significant change of use originally reported
