The Community Development Department offers a 24/7 online services portal to interact with the county's permits, licenses & code violations database. For those who only want to search the database, a guide titled "How to Research Permit & Inspection Information Online" is found in the right column of this page under "Related Links."
Some areas of the portal are for licensed contractors ONLY which requires enrollment for an account (i.e. applying for a permit, paying a fee or scheduling an inspection). A guide for account enrollment titled "How to Enroll for an Online Services Account (Contractors Only)" is found in the right column of this page under "Related Links." Also found under "Related Links" is a brochure titled "Online Permitting Guide" which is a service offered ONLY to licensed contractors (residential types only at present).
Note: enrollment is NOT required to only view/search the online database or to report code violations.
