As of Jan. 1, 2015 the city of Grinnell will no longer be issuing any permits or conducting any inspections for electrical work within the corporate limits of Grinnell. Permits and inspections will be issued and performed by the State of Iowa, their phone number is 515-725-6147 or toll free 866-923-1082. This change is being made in response to changes to State of Iowa guidelines for electrical inspectors.
Any permits that are taken out prior to Jan. 1, 2015 will be inspected by city personnel until the completion of that project. All new permits after this date will need to be requested of the State of Iowa.
This change only pertains to electrical work. City personnel will still take care of permits and inspections for building, plumbing, and mechanical projects.
Any questions regarding this change please contact Duane Neff, Director of Building & Planning, 641-236-2600.
