Since October 9, the City has been testing a requirement for inspection requests prior to 3:00 pm the day before the inspection. We have received very little feedback as to if this has had a negative impact on our customers.

The change has allowed a great deal more predictability in scheduling for both our inspectors and our customers, and has increased readiness for inspections.

Please help us by answering the following questions about the policy.

* 1. Have you requested an inspection since October 1, 2015?

* 2. The City is proposing to continue this change – a 3:00 pm request cutoff – through the end of March, 2016. What is your opinion about this change?

* 3. How has this change impacted your work? (Please be specific.)

* 4. Do you have any recommendations about how we can improve the inspection process?
