Need Help? Support staff is available to assist you in understanding required documentation needed to file applications. Support staff will also assist you as much as possible so that all necessary permits to complete your project may be obtained. Please keep in mind, however, support personnel aren’t inspectors and therefore, some questions are best directed to particular trade inspectors.
