Effective 8:00 am Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

On Sunday March 22ND, 2020, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued a “Stay at Home” Order.

To ensure the safety of both our customers and our employees, the Lake County Building Inspection Department is requesting that all submittals (building packets and individual permits) be made either digitally or via mail service. In addition, there is a drop of / pick up box downstairs in the lobby for submissions and applications. We are requesting that you only use the drop off / pick up option as a last resort. Drop off / pick up hours are from 9:00am – 2:pm.
Until further notice the office window will be closed. We are requesting that all customers call in advance before coming to pick up permits and/or plans to receive specific instruction.

Our department will continue doing inspections with the exception of any occupied residences or businesses unless it is an emergency as we are trying to limit contact with the public. With regard to inspections, we are encouraging everyone to call as early as possible to schedule an appointment. We will only be taking calls to schedule inspections from 8:00am – 2:00pm. Our department is committed to serving the public but without putting the health of our staff or the public at risk. Due to potential staffing shortages, we cannot guarantee next day inspection availability. During inspections we are requesting that everyone practice the social distancing guidelines set by the CDC. Our inspectors reserve the right to cancel or leave an inspection if they feel for any reason their health safety may be at risk.

We know that this is not the ideal situation, and there may be delays; but we feel the safety of everyone is of the utmost importance. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during this uncertain time.
