*Please note that on Tuesday, March 24, the Department of Inspections, Licenses and Permits, Electrical Services Division, will not be performing electrical inspections so that our staff can receive training  in preparation for the adoption of the 2020 National Electrical Code. The new code will become effective on April 6, 2020.  We are allowing enough time to schedule inspections accordingly, and any unique situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Thank you in advance for your understanding. If you have questions, please contact us at 410-638-3363.
