The City of Clarksville Building and Codes Department offices at 100 South Spring Street were closed to the public on Monday, July 17, and will remain closed on Tuesday, July 18, and Wednesday, July 19, as the Department prepares to launch a new processing system for communication and conducting departmental tasks.
Deidre Ward, Interim Director of Building and Codes, said the Department will still be performing inspections. However, the doors to the office will be closed this week through Wednesday.
Anyone wanting to request any inspections may issue an emailed request to BCRESREQ@CITYOFCLARKSVILLE.COM (for general questions / residential department) or BCCOMMERCIAL@CITYOFCLARKSVILLE.COM (commercial department).
On Monday, July 24, the Building & Codes offices will again be closed to the public. Building inspectors will only conduct inspections on that day, that are requested by, or before, Friday, July 21 at 3 p.m.
Further office closures, beyond those detailed in this announcement, are possible. If needed, they will be announced later.
The new processing system that Building and Codes will institute is called Energov. There will be a customer component called CSS for self-service with hands-on features that will offer greater convenience.
The seamless system will allow customers to be able to apply for permits, inspections, and communicate with Building and Codes, all from the comfort of their homes or offices, Ward said.
