*** INSPECTION NOTICE DURING COVID-19 CLOSURE – Updated March 29, 2020 ***

In response to the COVID-19 virus, building inspections are now only available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These inspections are limited to construction for essential activities.

This means that building inspections will only be scheduled for construction that:

  • Is related to an essential activity as described in the Governor’s Order;
  • Furthers a public purpose related to a public entity or government function;
  • Prevents or avoids damage to unsafe conditions; or
  • Is for an emergency repair at non-essential businesses and residential structures.

All contractors, applicants and homeowners are asked to stay at least six (6) feet from the inspector during an inspection. The inspector may cancel or reschedule an inspection if (s)he feels that appropriate social distancing and sanitation measures are not in place, or that such measures cannot reasonably be implemented while the inspector is there.

Inspection requests must be made by 2:00 pm the day prior to the requested inspection date. Please call (425) 263-8075 or email (permittech@mukilteowa.gov) to request an inspection.
