Courtesy Email Notification - Temporary Certificate of Occupancy About to Expire
Effective Date: 7/29/2015
Notice Content

​The purpose of this Notice is to inform the building industry, and other interested customers, about a new service. Effective immediately, an automated courtesy email will be sent to the Permit Holder giving notice that a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) will expire in 5 days from the date the email was sent.

Please note that it is the responsibility of the Contractor or Owner-Builder to rectify all stipulations listed on the TCO and to call for final inspections prior to the expiration of the TCO. If the work is not completed within the thirty day period by the Contractor or Owner-Builder, a 60 day fee ($200 or $400) will be posted to the permit. Every 30 days thereafter in which inspections remain outstanding, the next increasing 30 day fee will be added according to the above fee schedule. If the re-inspections are scheduled and are rejected on or after the date of expiration, the additional fees will be applied. Rejections are not considered a bona fide inspection and do not extend the life of the TCO. Below is the TCO Fee Schedule:

​ ​ ​ ​TCO Fee Schedule
Residential​ ​Commercial
1st 30 Days:​ ​$100 ​1st 30 Days: ​$200
2nd 30 Days (60 Days)​: ​$200 ​2nd 30 Days (60 Days)​: ​$400
3rd 30 Days (90 Days):​ ​$300 ​3rd 30 Days (90 Days): $500​
​Each 30 Days Thereafter $600​ ​Each 30 Days Thereafter ​$900


Upon expiration, or on the 120th day of the TCO, the Building Official will make a determination as to the disconnection of temporary electric service or place a hold on the contractor’s permitting privileges. Non-compliance with these requirements will result in a referral to the Code Enforcement Magistrate for Owner-Builders and to the Construction Industry Licensing Board for Contractors for final action.
