The City of Powell Building Department functions to help ensure uniform standards of construction, repairs and alterations of all structures and buildings within the City of Powell.
Building Department Operations Update (Sept. 8, 2020):
Occupied residential home inspections can now be scheduled. The projects to be inspected would include furnace/air conditioner replacements, gas pressure test, basement finishes, interior remodels and additions.
Residential homes that are unoccupied will continue to be inspected using our normal inspection procedures. Occupied residential homes will be done via a virtual inspection using one of several available live media streaming options or in person at the discretion of the Building Inspector.
When performing inspections of occupied residences during the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency, the following protocol will be observed:
For inspections that cannot be performed due to the health condition of the customer or refusal of the customer to follow protocol, they may be rescheduled for a later date.
Every attempt will be made to get your inspection the day you have requested it. Do not schedule any inspection until all of the work is completed and ready to be inspected.
-Fees may be paid online here once you have received an invoice from the City.
Inspections called/emailed in by 3:00 pm weekdays will be performed on the next business day.
