What happens during the inspection?

The inspector will review the plans, if applicable; verify that all required codes are met and either approve the inspection or provide a written list of code violations which will need to be corrected. Once all corrections have been completed, the inspection can be rescheduled. The inspector will sign the front of the permit record card when the inspection has been approved. Please read all notes that the inspector provides on the front or back of the permit card or on the yellow Lafayette Inspection tags.
