Concurrently, these inspectors are charged with upholding rigorous standards pertaining to the structural soundness and safety protocols of both residential and commercial entities. They oversee the issuance of an array of permits, covering everything from general building specifications to specific requirements for wiring, plumbing, gas, and signage. Their duties extend beyond permit allocation, encompassing comprehensive plan reviews, detailed on-site inspections, management of construction alterations and repairs, and oversight of changes in property use and demolitions. They are also pivotal in addressing zoning violations and conducting annual safety inspections for businesses accessible to the public, ensuring each establishment meets the city's stringent regulations for safety and public accessibility. Through these dedicated efforts, Building Inspectors serve as the city's first line of defense against structural compromises and safety violations.
