City to contact Kirkland residents on Saturdays about home inspections for permits


The City of Kirkland Planning and Building Department will be calling residents on Saturdays to set up home inspections and clear a backlog of expired permits. The inspections will typically relate to plumbing, mechanical and electrical permits where the contractor has put the burden of the inspection request on the homeowner. Many inspections are never requested, resulting in expired permits. Inspections can help uncover unsafe installations and keep residents safe. The City will be calling to set up inspections that best work with a homeowner’s schedule, including Saturdays.
