• COVID-19 Response: Updates on Permit Office Closures and Inspection Suspensions

    • Share:

    Due to COVID-19 concerns, many jurisdictions are altering office hours, closing permit counters, and even suspending inspections per guidance by the TPCHD. The situation is very fluid and each jurisdiction/service provider has been responding differently. MBA Pierce understands that these temporary closures and suspensions have MAJOR implications on the work our members do, so we've created this platform as a means to share updates on the statuses of jurisdictions and service providers.

    Please check this link daily for possible updates and also note that, if some jurisdictions have closed their physical permit counter, that many still have options to apply for permits online.
