WHEREAS: Individuals and local businesses that are applying for large-scale building permits are required to receive approval from the following inspectors: plumbing, wiring, handicap access, zoning, and building; and
      
WHEREAS: It has come to the attention of the City Council that sometimes, when a required inspector takes a vacation or extended sick-leave, those seeking building permits are required to stall their procedures until the necessary inspector returns; and 
     

WHEREAS:

In some cases, new businesses have stalled plans for over six weeks waiting for the sign-off of the necessary inspector; now therefore be it 
 

ORDERED:

That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to confer with the Inspectional Services Department as to the procedures in place for when an inspector takes a vacation or extended sick-leave and the potential of putting a back-up inspector in place to allow projects to move forward and report back to the City Council.
