- Development Services Update on Final Inspections: City inspectors will provide final inspections, as allowed under the March 31 County Public Health Order Section 13(d), for all projects where work was ready for a final inspection prior to March 31. Specifically, final inspections will be rescheduled for those that were canceled at the start of the County Order and where construction was completed and confirmed as ready for final inspection. No continuation of construction that is not allowed under the County Order should proceed.
