General Operations

The Inspections Department handles all comercial and residential inspections for the city. Call (251) 605-1556 for an appointment to have an inspector come to the site. The Inspections Office operating hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Friday. All building plans must be submitted prior to the issuance of a building permit for the inspectors to review. All new builders to Citronelle should set up an appointment with the Building Inspector, to go over the requirement for our city prior to beginning the building process. All plans must be reviewed before a building permit will be issued.

The Building Department of the City of Citronelle is charged with the administration and enforcement of the International Codes 2009 (Residential and Commercial Building, Plumbing, Mechanical, Gas and Fire), the National Electrical Code (NEC) 2009 (and all city supplements), and the Citronelle Zoning Ordinance to promote the public welfare and safety. The Codes generally provide that any requirement necessary for the stability of a building or the safety of the occupants not otherwise provided for in the text of these Codes shall be determined by the Building Official.

Before an Occupancy Certificate can be issued for utilities to be turned on, a complete list of sub-contractors, their address, phone number and license number must be submitted to the Permitting Clerk for verification.
