I have a question about a permit; can I speak with the Building Official?

You are always welcomed to contact the Building Official, however, it may be quicker to contact the Chief Inspector of the discipline that you have questions about. Most times, you can receive a quicker response from the Chief of Structural, Electrical, Plumbing, or Mechanical.  There are other disciplines that will also review your drawings, such as Landscaping, Zoning, and Engineering. Fire will also review the drawings for all buildings other than 1 and 2 family dwellings. Contact Info
