Will the process of obtaining a use permit delay closing or prolong the time necessary to get a building permit?
The intent of this process is to identify systems that are malfunctioning. For all systems passing the inspection, the Environmental Health Department is committed to processing a use permit within 3 - 5 business days upon receipt of a completed use permit application. If repairs to a system are necessary, those permits may be expedited so as not to delay closing or building permit issuance.
