***  New "ONLINE" Payment Option for Re-Inspections. ***

The county has listened to the needs of the development community and announces an enhancement to the Division’s customer service with a new online payment application.  The new online option allows contractors to make a payment online for a building re-inspection. This service makes getting a re-inspection very convenient to the contractor with the elimination of a visit to the building department, thereby saving time!
