Due to the current upswing in COVID cases in our community and in consideration of the impact this is having on our health care system, the following policy is in effect:
Interior property inspections, except for life safety hazards, are suspended. This includes tenant occupied license inspections. Complaints will be directed to supervisory staff to be reviewed and triaged. Only those complaints that are determined to involve immediate life safety hazards will be inspected. A staff member will reach out to property owners to reschedule tenant occupied inspections. Other complaints will be addressed via phone calls to the property owner and will be followed up on once the current emergency is over.
For inspections that must be conducted due to life safety issues, only one person may accompany the inspector and they MUST wear a mask and maintain social distancing. Residents must go to another area of the dwelling/structure during the inspection. If the property representative or complainant refuses to wear a mask or maintain social distancing our inspectors will not enter the premises and the inspection will be rescheduled.
