Inspection Services Guidelines

The City may, at its own discretion, request the developer to provide, at his expense, an independent engineer approved by the City for inspections on all the above items, thus reducing the permit fee to 2% of contract price including labor and materials. The following guideline requirements are developed to be followed by all agencies providing these inspection services:

  • Engineer - must be a registered professional engineer in the State of Florida. Must have complete knowledge and control over the project.

The report shall be signed by the inspector and the project manager.
