The mission of the Department of Inspection and Standards (DIS) is to promote both public safety and economic development.
Our staff assists constituents through the building permitting process, building code changes, city ordinances and zoning requirements, from small renovations to complex real estate projects. DIS handles day-to-day code enforcement, as well as responding to emergency cases like fires, accidents, and unsafe and dangerous structures. Our staff also responds to complaints from constituents to investigate potential violations and unsafe conditions.
