The Building Department will begin inspections in conjunction with Governor Whitmer’s resolution that allows for building construction to resume in the State of Michigan on May 7, 2020.
The Covid-19 Pandemic is still with us, so to keep our staff and the public we serve safe, our building will remain closed. We have adjusted our business practices and are able to review plans, issue permits and take payments by phone.
Our office staff currently has limited hours, phones and emails will be checked daily for inspection requests and scheduled appropriately. If you have questions please call 586-749-5171 or email firstname.lastname@example.org., your call or email will be responded to in a timely manner.
Our inspectors will be practicing social distancing and wearing the appropriate protective gear when doing inspections. If you have questions for any of the inspectors please, do not ask them while they are on site, contact the office and they will contact you by phone or email. This is a departure from our normal procedures; however, it is necessary currently. We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time – we want to be sure our employees and residents stay safe.
