Due to an increase in issued building permits, the City of Fairfield Building Division will consolidate its inspections to Monday through Thursday to maximize its staff.
“We have been trying to stretch our reduced staff to continue scheduling inspections Mondays through Fridays, but found that it just wasn’t working well,” said Erin Beavers, Community Development director. “Our building inspectors will assume a Monday through Thursday, nine-hour a day work schedule starting on October 1.”
He added this will provide improved customer service.
Beginning Friday, October 5, limited Friday building inspections will be available only if they are scheduled in person at the building division business counter by noon on the preceding Thursday.
Friday inspections will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis, will not be made for a specific time, and will cost an additional $60 per occurrence, payable at the time of scheduling. Subdivision developers will be charged a minimum of $120 for two hours of inspection time and $60 per hour thereafter.
The phone-in process for scheduling inspections for Monday through Thursday has not changed.
