Effective October 1, 2019 the City of Dubuque Building Services Department will require all inspections be scheduled a minimum one business day prior to the requested inspection date. This change is being made to better ensure inspector and office availability for our customers. Due to the nature and urgency of certain work, the Building Services Department will continue to accommodate same day inspections for foundations, trench work, gas pressure tests, replacement furnaces and replacement electrical service. The Building Services Department is open Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Inspections can be scheduled by calling (563) 589-4150. Please have your permit number and project address ready when scheduling inspections.
