Business License Inspection Process

After an application is made with Business Licensing inspections are required by the Building, Electrical, and Plumbing sections. Applications are sent to each section for an initial inspection and results of inspections are automatically forwarded to Licensing on your behalf. If there are items that require correction the applicant will be required to attend to these items and contact the respective section for approval.

If there are any active permits for the location you have applied for they will be required to have final approval before approval can be granted for the business license. This includes permits that were applied for when the previous tenant(s) occupied the building. If final approval is granted for a permit it is the responsibility of the licensee to schedule an inspection using their Business License number with the respective sections. Please contact the Inspection Sections (below) directly to make sure your Business License is approved after your permit has received final approval, as these are separate processes.

Please note for Building Permits that have Electrical or Plumbing requirements these permits must have final approval prior to the Final Approval of the Building Permit.
