What happens after I get the permit?updated: Friday, January 20, 2017
Once you or your contractor have been granted a permit, you may begin with the approved work. For some projects, an inspection is required as you complete different stages of work. In example, an electrical rough-in inspection is required before you cover the wiring with drywall. For straightforward installations, such as a water heater, only a final inspection is required when the work is completed.
You must contact the Inspections Department to schedule an inspection. To know when inspections are required, check your permit card for your project's required inspections or call 952.924.2588. During the inspection a city inspector will check the work to verify that it meets the Minnesota Building Code and City Zoning requirements. For more information, call the Inspections Department at 952.924.2588.
