What is an Ordinance Inspection and what are the requirements? View the information sheet.

When is an Inspection Necessary? An inspection is required for all construction or work for which a permit is required and shall be subject to inspection by the building official and all such construction or work shall remain accessible and exposed for inspection purposes until approved by the building official.

Who Schedules an Inspection? The person performing the work for inspection is responsible for scheduling and ensuring the work is ready for inspection.

How do I Schedule an Inspection? Depending upon the type of permit and work to be performed you may establish an inspection at the time of permitting (no more than three business days out), or:

  • via phone by calling the Voice Permits (IVR) line at 817-392-6370
  • by calling Customer Service at 817-392-2222 (between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.) via our Online Permit System
  • to schedule an inspection you will need the Permit Number, Job Address, and Inspection Code. Inspections received before 6:30 a.m. each day will be scheduled for inspection on that day. Requests received at or after 6:30 a.m. will be scheduled for the next business day.
