DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) ALL “COMMERCIAL BUILDING INSPECTIONS” HAVE BEEN AMENDED AS FOLLOWS:

Attention Commercial Builders and Contractors, 

As many local jurisdictions are taking precautionary measures to reduce and minimize the risk of spread and exposure to Inspectors, City Staff and Community, the City of Eagle Building Department will be suspending commercial site inspections on Fridays until further notice. In compliance with Governor’s Order to Self-Isolate, all Commercial Building Inspections shall be performed with Social Distancing orders as defined by Section 8.j. to the extent possible. Inspections will resume Monday through Thursday. Inspection of structural concrete placement should be scheduled late on a Thursday.

This measure will also provide improved service and efficiency with permit processing and plan reviews as alternate work schedules, including work-from-home, are being implemented. 

Electrical, Mechanical and Plumbing inspections will occur Monday through Friday as usual. Safety precautions and preparedness should be coordinated with your inspector prior to arrival.


UPDATE! EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2019
