The Permits & Inspections Office mission is to ensure that construction and maintenance of structures in Bellevue meet strict safety standards.
The office is staffed with six inspectors and two administrative personnel.
In 2009, the department received its second number one rating from the insurance Services Office for commercial and residential applications in the Building Code Effectiveness Grading Classifications. This rating has only been awarded to five jurisdictions in the country.
The office recently has been tasked with the inspection and completion of the Offutt Air Force Base Rising View development.
