Inspections and Licenses
Contact the Building Inspector to schedule inspections at least 24 hours prior to the requested inspection.
Inspections are required on setbacks, footings, groundwork, rough-in, and framing, among others. No Occupancy Certificate can be issued without proper permits and inspections.
Please remember to call Diggers Hotline of Nebraska at 811 to locate all utilities at least two working days prior to any digging or excavation.
Additional inspections and approval may be required by the State Electrical Division, State Fire Marshal's Office, State Health Department, or other entities and authorities, depending on the type of project. Wahoo Utilities can answer questions regarding extension of service or connection of electric, water, sewer, or natural gas service.
