How Best to Contact Us

Due to the extremely heavy volume, we encourage and request all residents to communicate with this Office in electronic format. This will facilitate the process as Officials/Inspectors are generally out on the road and not available to take requests during that time. Communication with the Construction Office may be done by the following preferred methods:

  1. Our preferred method of requesting all inspections and filing all complaints, etc is to use SDL Online Portal. This will start an electronic paperwork trail. Information on the SDL Portal is available at this link; (also look for a new FAQ page about how better to navigate the SDL Portal coming soon.)
  2. The next best method of contact for inspection related items, questions for plan reviewers or inspectors is via email. Emails regarding inspections must be sure to include the following information: Permit #, which inspection type you are looking for, 3 dates (no time frame available) you wish to have inspection and the address of the property to be inspected.
