Can the city do inspections with video?

The City of Marietta can perform 'stand-alone' MEP inspections such as water heaters and HVAC changeouts in occupied homes by way of the Cisco Webex cell phone application. It will be the responsibility of the contractor to ensure installers have this capability. When the inspection is needed, contractor will call main number, 770-794-5659, Option 8 to request inspection. Contractor should be ready to provide name, phone number, address, and permit number. An assigned inspector will then video-call the on-site installer to perform inspection.

Note this is a 'same day' inspection – scheduled orally by the permittee or the permittee's agent (installer) and subject to all City of Marietta rules and regulations.
