To schedule an inspection, call 435-755-1650, and give the following information:

 

  1. The name that is listed on the permit as the owner.
  2. The address as listed on the building permit.
  3. The type of inspection needed.
  4. What time if day that the inspection is desired. If you have scheduled concrete, state the projected time.

 

Please note that all times are approximate times. The uniform building code requires 24 hours notice.
