Why are temporary utilities provided?
In order to complete the inspection, the inspector requires the water and electricity to be functioning in the home. The applicant or Building Inspections department can authorize temporary electric utility service for a period of 10 days while repairs are underway. Water service can also be authorized for a period not to exceed ten (10) days, assuming that the owner properly sets up a water account with a deposit.
