How do I pay for an failed re-inspection fee?

MyGov only accepts MasterCard and Visa.  Navigate to your permit page. You should see a "Green Pay Bar", where you can click to pay your fee.

What happens if I do not obtain the required permit(s)?

A Correction Notice will be issued and the non-permitted installation will be placed out of service and use. A permit will be required to be obtained along with all the required inspections. If the items that are required inspections are covered up or concealed in any fashion, they shall be uncovered and inspected. This may require destruction to occur and re-installation at your expense.

A simple phone call to the BCCO prior to start of installation would be very helpful to you and your installation.

How much do permits cost?

All permits issued by the Building Code Compliance Office are free of charge. This means that you will get the satisfaction and piece of mind that whatever you construct or install will be code compliant and safe for the students, staff and general public that learn, work and visit all of the OCPS schools and facilities without a cost associated.
