Effective Monday, March 23, the Town of Morrisville Inspections Department is indefinitely amending their inspections process in an effort to limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus.  The inspections process change will be as follows:

  • At this time, Inspections staff will temporarily suspend conducting in person inspections of change-outs in occupied residential homes.
  • Staff will maintain a contact list of permits with suspended inspections and will reach out to reschedule when it has been deemed appropriate to do so.
  • For applicants wishing to do so, HVAC change out (no gas) and other inspections identified in the NC DOI Guidance Paper may be conducted via Live Remote Inspections

The Inspections Department promotes the safety of lives, health, and welfare of the general public within the built environment by the administration and enforcement of the North Carolina State Building Code, as well as local municipal ordinances for new or renovated construction related to building, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing trades.
