To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 our BUILDING IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC and staff are working remotely. 

For the consideration of your health and safety and that of our Inspections team during this time we are temporarily transitioning to electronic inspections. These e-Inspections allow most inspections to be authorized via photo submittal or live video.

Please watch for updates at the State of Wisconsin and Eau Claire City-County Health Department websites for the latest information on COVID-19 and its impact on whether and how you can start or continue onsite construction work. As always, we encourage you to continue to submit permit applications and inspection requests online here as well.

How to request an e-inspection

Apply for Permit - Pay for Permit - Schedule an Inspection
