Chelan County building inspections now limited to continuation of essential public services, emergency home repairs

WENATCHEE - Pursuant to the Governor’s Order effective at midnight last night, March 25, building inspections will be strictly limited to those activities necessary for the continuation of “essential public services” and for emergency home repairs related to life and safety issues.
Our office is officially closed to the public, which means that no walk-ins, appointments, or drop offs will be accepted.  We will, however, accept electronic or mail-in submissions, if they are complete. Email them to:  Please call our office at 509-667-6225 if you would like additional information on this process.
When building permits are ready for pick up, the applicant/owner will be notified.  If the applicant/owner wants it issued, permit payment will be arranged, the packet will be mailed and the time clock for construction will start, regardless of the current crisis, noting that no inspections will be scheduled until further notice.  Owners/applicants may choose to wait for permit issuance until the lifting of the Governor’s Order.
Land use permits continue to be reviewed and processed.  However, we are still at less than ½ staff (now for the protection of our employees), so please be patient.
We are all in this together – stay healthy.
